Klopp will be without the suspended Can and long-term absentee Nathaniel Clyne, while Joe Gomez (knee) is a doubt but Ragnar Klavan has been declared fit following a thigh injury.
Record signing Virgil van Dijk is set for his first appearance in the competition for the club he joined in January and goalkeeper Loris Karius is set to keep his place in goal.

Other Porto players who are injured include Marcano, Danilo and Andre Andre.
