Next Up: Porto (a)

Liverpool travel to Portugal for the first match of the Champions League group stages against FC Porto.

Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Dirk Kuyt are all expected to return to the starting line up. As could Javier Mascherano and John Arne Riise in midfield.

Porto go into the game having won their first four fixtures of the season and top of their League. They will, however, be without star striker Helder Postiga.

Their key players are Ricardo Quaresma and Lucho Gonzalez.

The match will be played at the 52,000 seater Estádio do Dragão in Porto.
