Liverpool stormed to victory in Portugal last night. The Reds were in fine form as they beat Porto yet again. It must be awful for the fans whenever they see Liverpool’s name come out of the hat. Michael Owen has slammed Joe Gomez for his part in the Porto goal.
Porto 1-5 Liverpool
Whenever Liverpool go to the Estadio do Dragao they win.
In the past few years we’ve played there three times and the games have ended 14-2 on aggregate to the Reds.
The home fans must be sick of the sight of Jürgen Klopp and his tricky Reds.
This time out it was Curtis Jones who was the star of the show. Despite not getting a goal himself he ran the game in the midfield.
Mo Salah bagged a brace thanks to the Scouser’s good work, as did Roberto Firmino.
Sadio Mane grabbed the Reds’ other goal whilst the hosts grabbed a consolation strike.
Michael Owen on Joe Gomez
When the Reds were 3-0 up the hosts managed to notch an effort of their own.
Mehdi Taremi got ahead of his marker to head home impressively.
The striker managed to curl a header past Alisson Becker, it was a well taken goal.
Michael Owen has criticised Joe Gomez for his role in the incident, telling BT Sport:
“[Joe Gomez] should have [done better]. Once he got the wrong side of [Mehdi Taremi], there’s no way back – certainly with a centre-forward of that size. If you get the wrong side, you’re pinned and you’re a goner. He squeezed out on the wrong side.”
What RTK has to say
We have to agree, the 11-cap star could’ve done better.
However, Joe Gomez did come into the game late and not in his natural position.
Thankfully we aren’t expecting JoGo to start at right back against Manchester City, we’re more likely to see James Milner marking Jack Grealish.
