Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren insists his side can win the Champions League once again after their 5-0 victory over FC Porto on Wednesday.

Winger Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick to help the Reds put themselves in total control of their two-legged tie with the Portuguese giants.

Liverpool will welcome Porto to Anfield in two weeks’ time but they already have one foot in the next round after their scintillating display.

Jurgen Klopp’s troops have impressed in the Premier League this season going forward and Lovren is adamant they can go all the way in Europe.

He told reporters: “It was serious football and we showed we can manage the game from the first until the last minute.

“I think we learned from our mistakes. When you are 2-0, 3-0 up you think it is over but it is not and you still have a lot to play.

“We have so much quality so we can beat everyone if we are on our top level – as simple as that. Of course. Yes, if we are right and we do our job like we did and everyone defends well.

“It is good when they don’t talk about us. Maybe people would consider them to be the favourites – even better. We are the underdogs I would say. I love that when people think that about us.”

The Reds are now 11.00 to win the title under Klopp, while they are 1.44 to beat Porto on March 6. The draw is 4.50, while Porto are priced at 6.50 to win at Anfield.
