Liverpool boss Klopp: Man Utd clash won't impact Porto team selection

Jurgen Klopp has insisted he will not rest players for next week's Champions League clash with Porto.

The Reds stunned their Portuguese opponents with a 5-0 victory in the first leg of their last-16.

But the German has said he will not be taking the fixture lightly, despite having a pivotal clash with Manchester United just four days later.

Klopp said: "Another week now for Newcastle, then Porto and United in one week. All the people before the Porto game will tell me, 'Now you can rest him, him and him'.

"Arsenal for example, that's so unfair. They were through in the tie and had a final on Sunday yet I only hear after the game things like, 'wow that was embarrassing against a Swedish team'. But they are through in the tie and played a final on Sunday.

"That's the situation. We play Man United, we will not rest anybody. We will play a strong side against Porto and a strong side against United."
