Champions League: Liverpool's match against Napoli requires calm approach

  • Talking Points: Bournemouth 0 - 4 Liverpool FC

Luciano Spalletti's Inter side, level with Tottenham on seven points but below them on head-to-head, lost 1-0 to Serie A leaders Juventus on Friday but will be heavy favourites at home to bottom side PSV who have just one point from seven matches in the Champions League this season.

Mohamed Salah is surely the worst ever one season wonder to grace the Premier League.

Defender Virgil Van Dijk insists Liverpool can handle a double-pronged assault on the Premier League and Champions League. "He deserved it today and he's had an incredible career so I hope we're going to win something this season together but I will not take it." .

Joel Matip has featured in the last two matches having been inactive for most of the season so Klopp will be tempted to give him a rest.

"How we all know, the club is in a good moment and I really think we should, not celebrate it, but have it in our mind and use it for this game".

Making his 500th appearance in Premier League football was Mr Reliable himself, James Milner.

That is a big job to do but the boys have played many times and pretty good as well.

One of the top assisters in Klopp's first season at the club, Milner was then forced to fill in at left back for an entire campaign in 2016/17, not complaining once despite it not being anywhere close to his favourite position.


Liverpool return to action on Tuesday when they host Napoli in a must-win Champions League group stage encounter.

The goal of the game would come on 77 minutes, with the outstanding Salah racing into the box before bamboozling Begovic and slotting home to round off a fine individual display.

The best form of defence is a good offence... unless you're playing Liverpool.

"I'm really looking forward to it".

Salah also earned praise from the pundits.

"Sadio can deal with the pain obviously - it looked like that in Bournemouth, so that's cool", Klopp told a news conference on Monday.

Liverpool moved a point ahead of Manchester City after the champions lost 2-0 at Chelsea.

Even before the 4-0 win against Bournemouth, Liverpool had enjoyed the best start to a top-flight season in their 126-year history. It should never have come to this for Klopp's side, but consecutive defeats to Red Star Belgrade and PSG mean that it has.
