Liverpool should have Europe on alert after defeat of Porto - Henderson
From ESPN - February 15, 2018

PORTO, Portugal -- Jordan Henderson feels teams all around Europe will be wary about facing Liverpool and believes that was the case even before Wednesday's 5-0 demolition of Porto.

Liverpool are well on course to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time since 2009 after a dominant display in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie at the Estadio do Dragao.

"I think before this game, I am not sure how many teams would have wanted to play us anyway because when we are on it, like we were tonight, we are very hard to play," Henderson said.

"But that has to be our norm and we have to be consistent with the performances and to get results like this. Yes, it is a lot of goals. Hopefully, we can get more. At the same time, we need to make sure we get clean sheets like we did tonight."

Liverpool's potent front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all scored against their Portuguese opposition, taking this season's total to 99 goals in all competitions.

Mane scored his first hat trick for Liverpool at Porto and Salah recorded his 30th goal of the campaign in all competitions.
