This week’s Champions League clashes brought us some surprising results on Tuesday.
An apparent back injury forced Naby Keita off in the first half, but Klopp was unable to offer any update.
After drawing 1-1 away at Chelsea at the weekend, Liverpool face a tricky challenge against the Serie A side.
Keita transferred to Liverpool in the summer from RB Leipzig for £52.75 million and joins Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the ranks of their injured midfielders. Ancelotti will rely on Kalidou Koulibaly to organize the back four against Liverpool’s attack.
Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik nearly snatched the lead for the Italian side in the 33rd minute after turning well on the edge of the box before unleashing a powerful strike that was punched away by Liverpool shot-stopper Alisson.
Unsurprisingly, Jurgen Klopp has gone with all of Liverpool’s star-studded attackers in the team, as Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will be supporting Roberto Firmino in the final third.
The hosts kept up the pressure after the break with Insigne crossing for Milik, who lashed towards goal on 50 minutes, but Joe Gomez came to the rescue after Alisson spilled the ball.
Napoli dominated the second half as substitute Dries Mertens also deflected an effort on to the crossbar.
Virgil van Dijk is fit enough to start as well, with the Dutchman lining up at the heart of the defence. “That happened to us”. That’s why we’re all so disappointed, because we expect more and to bring more.
“Napoli used the atmosphere”.
Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti received praise for his team’s setup, particularly given their success in nullifying Liverpool’s front three.
“This is an important victory because it shows a progression, especially in terms of mentality”.
It was a worrying performance from Liverpool, with Klopp accepting his side deserved little after a display that was not ideal preparation for Sunday’s massive Premier League game against Manchester City at Anfield.
