Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager praised his side after a first leg demolition of Porto in Wednesday’s Champions League tie.
The Reds thrashed Sergio Conceicao’s men, who are unbeaten in the Primeira Liga this season.
Porto have only conceded 10 goals in 21 league matches this season but Liverpool netted 5 unreplied goals with Sadio Mane grabbing a hat-trick.
“It was very professional, very mature and in the right moments very aggressive,” Klopp told BT Sport.
“Good defending, good counter-attacking, keeping the ball, moving them around. It was not easy tonight, it was hard work and in the end the boys enjoyed the work and that’s the most important thing.
“They [the goals] were all fantastic. The first one, when Dejan [Lovren] won the ball and Sadio can shoot at the end, the second goal was a nice finish from Mo, and the third was fantastic play on the counter attack. They were all fantastic and we needed them all.
“I saw a lot of fantastic performances tonight, a result like this is only possible if they are all spot on.
“They all performed. Of course Sadio is man of the match with three goals, fantastic goals, but Roberto Firmino’s work rate was outstanding.
“They all did well and that’s the only way to be successful.
“We go now to a camp and have one-and-a-half days of not too hard work, but then we have four sessions, there is a lot to do,” said the Reds boss.
