Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Porto

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League clash with Porto on Tuesday.

Liverpool will be aiming to make it back-to-back wins to start the 2021-22 Champions League when they make the journey to Porto on Tuesday evening.

Jurgen Klopp's side came out on top in a five-goal classic with AC Milan during their opening clash two weeks ago, with Jordan Henderson bagging the all-important winner in a 3-2 success.

The Reds enter this game on the back of a six-goal thriller with Brentford in the Premier League, but they threw away the lead twice in a 3-3 draw against the newly-promoted side.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
