Champions League 2019 quarter final draw

Midfielder Naby Keita looks like he is finally starting to deliver on his £53million price tag after scoring for the second successive match to put Liverpool in control of their Champions League quarter-final with Porto.

The Guinea international netted his first Anfield goal in the 2-0 win over the Portuguese visitors five days after his maiden strike in the Premier League at Southampton.

Keita put in arguably his best performance in a red shirt since joining in the summer and after a difficult settling-in period appears to be fulfilling the faith Jurgen Klopp placed in him in agreeing a deal with RB Leipzig 12 months before he actually arrived.

Roberto Firmino's 14th goal in the competition for the club, drawing level with Mohamed Salah and Ian Rush, doubled Liverpool's lead but the only disappointment on the night was that they did not finish the job as they had done last season when they won the first leg 5-0 in Porto.
