A point is needed out of our final 2 group games to confirm our place in the knockout stages.
Fresh from our hard fought victory against Palace on Saturday, we host Napoli, who are a point behind us in Group E, with 8 points.
Domestically, Napoli sit 7th in Serie A, after an indifferent start to their campaign. They drew 1-1 away against AC Milan on Saturday, this was the team they fielded:
I expect us to have the same squad available as we did against Palace with Matip’s return date still uncertain and Klopp saying Shaqiri needs to get match fit before he’s included in a match day squad.
Fabinho is suspended for our next Premier League game so I expect him to start this one.
I can see Oxlade playing a vital part in this game, I think his powerful running from midfield could be the difference.
It would be nice to see Keita, Lallana and Origi come off the bench and try to get some rhythm going as we are going to be relying on them to come on in games and make an impact over the course of the season.
I can see Napoli giving us a good game, as expected, but I think we will win this 3-1.
