Jurgen Klopp has named his starting team to take on Porto in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tonight.

The Liverpool boss has made three changes to the team that beat Southampton 2-0 in the Premier League last Sunday, with Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Dejan Lovren coming into the side in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Emre Can and Joel Matip.

Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane have been named in a dangerous Liverpool attack, while Virgil van Dijk will make his first Champions League start for his new club at centre back.

Here is the Liverpool XI:

Karius, Trent-Alexander, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Mané, Salah, Firmino.
