Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

It's been a long time since we saw any meaningful contribution from Xherdan Shaqiri in a Liverpool shirt. In truth, it probably came in that memorable Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield, when his beautiful curling cross was met by a thumping Gini Wijnaldum header to bring Liverpool level in the tie.

Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

After emphatically dumping Nivo Kovac's Bayern Munich out of the Champions League this week, Liverpool were handed what on paper seems to be a preferable quarter-final after being drawn against Porto. The 1-3 scoreline at the Allianz Arena along with a composed and assured performance in Bavaria has led many to believe that Liverpool are in with a serious chance of replicating last year's European form and making it all the way to the final for a second consecutive season …
