Liverpool equal scoring feat they've now achieved only three times in club's history

Liverpool ran riot again in Porto on Tuesday as they smashed five past their opponents to romp to victory in the Champions League.

Two goals each for Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, plus one for Sadio Mane, ensured the Reds kept their place at the top of Group B and secured all three points in Portugal.

It’s not the first time in Jurgen Klopp’s tenure that his side has comfortably seen off Porto – who have now lost four times to Liverpool since the German took charge.

And their latest defeat helped the Merseyside club equal a goalscoring feat they have only achieved on three occasions during their illustrious history.

The 5-1 win was the sixth match in succession that Liverpool have scored three times or more – something they have only done in 1892 (the year the club was founded), and in 2009 (via OptaJoe).

Their run this time round began with the 3-0 win over Leeds, which was followed up by them edging out AC Milan 3-2 in their last Champions League encounter.

Successive 3-0 wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich City came next, before Saturday’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Brentford.

It took Salah just 18 minutes to get his side off the mark at the Estadio do Dragao, tapping home from close range after Curtis Jones’ shot was parried into his path by Porto’s goalkeeper Diogo Costa.

Mane then doubled Liverpool’s advantage just before the half-time break, before Salah made it 3-0 on the hour.

Porto did pull a goal back through Mehdi Taremi but two goals in four minutes from Firmino wrapped up the points to take back to Anfield.

The performance of Jones particularly impressed, after the midfielder had a hand in four of Liverpool’s goals.

Ex-Liverpool forwards Peter Crouch and Michael Owen praised the 20-year-old for his display after the match.

“Curtis Jones was very impressive tonight,” Crouch said on BT Sport. “He has excellent feet and was making driving runs at the right time.”

Owen added: “Before Harvey Elliott got injured, he was the one with the shirt. Curtis Jones has always been around, here and there, but for his sake he needs a long run in the team.

“When he gets the chance he needs to do what he did tonight.”

Liverpool boss Klopp was asked about his team’s performance in front of goal this month, replying: “20 goals in September? Oh! It didn’t feel like this.”

But despite the win, he was in no mood to get carried away with a tough test up next.

“We conceded some goals too,” he added. “We play Man City [on Sunday], it makes no sense to think about how many we can score vs them.

“We need a complex and complete performance but I am looking forward to playing at home again.”
