Salah and Firmino score a brace apiece as Liverpool move past Porto Liverpool's attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino resumed their Champions League activities on Tuesday night, showing Europe what they are in a 5-1 win in Porto.
The Reds made the Estadio do Dragao look like their backyard as they cracked down, and for MSF's strike force, it was a reminder that they still had it. Between them, Liverpool's flagship front has well over 300 goals for the club, but last season they fell short and Jurgen Klopp started tinkering with the squad, introducing Diogo Jota, as MSF's days seemed be completed. In 2020/21, Firmino was often held back by injuries, while Mane admitted it was the worst season of his career.
In Porto, it was Jota who got the green light, starting with Mane and Salah, but the latter two had scored three between them when Firmino came to replace Salah, the Brazilian by adding two more. The Dragons will be fed up with watching the trio, who have now scored 14 in five games against the Portuguese team.
