      Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: In game and Post Match discussion
      Sep 17, 2019 06:43:03 pm

      The Reds at Stadio San Paolo





      Starting XI: Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Milner, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

      Subs: Kelleher, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri.

       Andy Robertson starts as Liverpool open their Champions League group-stage campaign at Napoli tonight.

      The defender has recovered from a slight knock to take his place in the Reds’ line-up at the Stadio San Paolo.

      In total, Jürgen Klopp makes three changes to the team deployed against Newcastle United on Saturday, with Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson and James Milner coming in for Divock Origi, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Georginio Wijnaldum.

      I think we can all accept now that Fabinho is THE first choice midfielder for Liverpool.

      As it should be! He breaks down team brilliantly for a feather-weight defensive midfielder.

      I agree, they cancel each other out a bit, hope Klopp doesn't revert to his negative away tactics of last season.

      I obviously hope we win, but more than that I hope all our away supporters come back safe and sound!
      Been to Naples, it can be scary!

      A little concerned with the midfield, think we’ll miss the dynamism of Gini but I guess he needs a break.

      We had Wijnaldum, Milner and Keita in midfield last year and the front three didn't get the ball so I can understand the logic in playing with perhaps more disciplined midfielders.

      A midfield with both Hendo and Milner is probably at the bottom of my list with the usual combinations. Milner in particular is a concern for me because IMO he’s arguably been our worst player so far this season.

      Think the rest of the team picks itself though and it’s good to see that Robbo is okay. Mind, I hope it’s not playing at a risk of setting an injury off, last thing we need with Chelsea at the weekend.

      Don’t want to tempt fate but surely we can’t play as bad as we did here last year?!

      He is ridiculously good in his role, not just breaking up attacks but good diagonal passing to open wings. Has probably risen to be in the top-3 most important player for us, after Van Dijk and Firmino.

      I guess Klopp is going with more defensive trio in the middle so it is not shocking to see Milner for Gini as oppose to Ox or Shaqiri lets hope Milner can put a good shift in and our front three can continue their rich vein of form. Figure would of seen Brewster in the squad with Origi out as another attacking option.

      Looking forward to see how to guys do in what will be our toughest fixture so far this season.

      Gini needed a break so no problem with Milner coming it very rarely let's us down . Very strong side and any positive result will be fine going into Chelsea

      Team makes sense in the broader context, and don't forget how Gini did when he came off the bench vs. Barcelona.

      This match puts the other 15 Champions League openers to shame. Should be quite good.

      LET'S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Napoli is quick and typical Ancelotti tactic, swiftly get into the opposition box and create scoring opportunities. We probably have to control midfield.  probably a 1-1 but will be very happy if we could win by a slim margin.
