The Liverpool fans are feeling optimistic in the Transfer Tavern ahead of their clash with FC Porto this evening, but they are slightly concerned by the early team news which suggests Alberto Moreno is set to return to the starting line up.

Jurgen Klopp takes his side to Portgual tonight to face FC Porto at the Estadio Do Dragao for the first-leg of Liverpool’s last-sixteen Champions League tie.

Liverpool will certainly be in for a tough night against a side who remain unbeaten in Liga Nos after 21 fixtures. In the Champions League, the Dragoes won 2 and lost 1 of their home fixtures during the group stage, scoring 9 goals in the process.

With those statistics in mind, Liverpool can be sure of enduring a tough night against a potent attacking side in Portugal this evening. Ahead of their first-leg fixture, Liverpool FC reporter for the Liverpool Echo, namely James Pearce, reported that Alberto Moreno could be drafted into the starting eleven tonight for only his second first-team fixture since the end of November.
