Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has named Nathaniel Clyne in a travelling squad for the first time this season ahead of Wednesday's tie away to Porto in the Champions League.

The 24-year-old managed a clean sheet as his side went on to register a 2-0 win at St Mary's Stadium to lift themselves up to the third spot in the league table, a spot that had temporarily been occupied by Tottenham Hotspur.

"We were quite comfortable because of playing good football through the group stage and now we are here in the last 16 it's fantastic". "Liverpool are an offensive team with very interesting players, but they also have their weaknesses", he said at the draw in Nyon last December.

The Portuguese side progressed to the knock out stage at the expense of RB Leipzig and Monaco.

The Reds were 4-1 winners in the return game thanks to Fernando Torres' brace as well as goals from Steven Gerrard and Peter Crouch at Anfield.
