Lisbon, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino netted two goals apiece as Liverpool waltzed to a comfortable 5-1 victory away at Porto in the UEFA Champions League.
Liverpool were the better side from start to finish and managed to turn their superiority into a goal in the 18th minute when Salah pounced on the rebound after Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa denied Curtis Jones, as the Egyptian forward netted the opener.
Neither Diogo Jota nor Jordan Henderson managed to beat the goalkeeper on two occasions following Salah's goal, but Sadio Mane doubled Liverpool's lead just before the interval after an assist from James Milner.
Jota wasted another two fine chances after the break to put the game to bed, but Salah did not miss from inside the box on the hour mark and practically finished the game as a contest
Porto did not give in after conceding the third and pushed for a goal, though, with Mehdi Taremi pulling one back with 15 minutes to go, but that seemed to wake Liverpool back up as Roberto Firmino came off the bench to bag a brace after replacing Salah.
Liverpool have registered two wins from two in the Champions League and they currently top Group B on six points, followed by Atletico Madrid with four points and Porto, who have just one point while bottom-placed AC Milan have lost both of their two Champions League games so far, the Spanish MARCA newspaper reported.
