      Liverpool 2-0 Napoli: In game and Post Match discussion
      Nov 01, 2022 06:47:47 pm






      Hopefully get through this without any injuries.  Not expecting miracles.

      Ibrahima Konate returns to the starting line-up for Liverpool’s Champions League encounter with SSC Napoli tonight.

      The centre-back is restored to the Reds defence as four changes are made from the weekend clash with Leeds United.

      Kostas Tsimikas is named at left-back, while James Milner starts in midfield and Curtis Jones returns in attack.

      Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Fabinho, Milner, Thiago, Jones, Salah, Firmino.

      Subs: Adrian, Kelleher, Gomez, Elliott, Ramsay, Robertson, Nunez, Carvalho, Bajcetic, Phillips.

      Wanted Nunez out there, still needs game time to sharpen up and get a better understanding with Mo. Still a competitive line up. Won't be a frantic mad dash but we want to win. Jones obviously has a lot to prove so we need to see the desire, got to make an impression.

      I’d prefer a defeat and no injuries to a victory with injuries in this one.

      Will be a difficult game. They have started the season well and battered us in the last game.

      I’ll go for 2-2. Late equaliser by konate.

      Would have given Bajcetic the start in midfield.

      Bit disappointed in that if I'm honest

      Well we're pretty thin on the ground in midfield at the mo, but not sure Millie has the pace and energy to operate in there against this lot, who move the ball about pretty quickly. Not a fan of Jones either.  Doesn't move the ball quick enough, always seem to want an extra touch or two, then loses possession.
      I never like to predict a Liverpool loss, but under the circumstances, I'm going for a gutsy draw tonight. 2-2 Hope i'm wrong and we come away with a solid win and start to turn our season around. We've lost recently, but its not like were not creating chances. Lets see a few hit the back of the net tonight. Get an early one, and it's a different ball game for the opposition as well.
      Fingers crossed it goes well for us, but I wont hold my breath.

      McManaman and Bt Sport - saying we need to win 4-0 and talking about La Liga - absolute shocking knowledge. Napoli have also not beaten an English side (I presume they mean in England) which they also didn't say.

      Not sure why Nunez doesn't get to start.

      Was hoping to see him get some minutes to help his confidence not sure benching him does that.

      Strong enough line up to make something of the game, if Klopp has taken the line of you got us in this mess sort it out approach them fair enough, we need a performance this evening.

      Guess Klopp is looking for a response from some of the guys. Here we go then.

      Yeah we know what the others can do. Bit of youthful energy in there, hope he gets enough in the second half to make it worth putting his boots on.

      It’s a bit no win situation- some players need to find form , also you don’t want them to be beaten convincingly before the Spurs game - but it is the perfect chance to give them minutes.

      Next week against Derby will be the time

      Jones looks as if he's playing just in behind Mo & Bobby...now he doesn't have to track back, he's been given a clear attacking brief...no more sideways or knocking it back to VVD....no more just trotting about getting the odd touch....time to step up to the plate Curtis..

      Find that team selection a bit strange. We've got a few kids who we need to see more of, to see if they are viable options this season and they're not starting whilst we are starting a few that could do with some protecting from injury.

      Can’t say I’m looking forward too much to tonight after that disastrous weekend, however the games a bogey cos we’ve already qualified, that doesn’t  mean we can relax and not give a sh*t, quite the contrary, for I want this game to be a platform for the rest of the season, no Cnut gave a cat in hell’s chance V  the Fraudsters but we actually out played them Cnuts off the f***in pitch, so I would like a similar performance against Napoli,

      Bit of a strange X1 from Jürgen, part rocket up the arse, part protection of players part give that Cnut another go, guess we’ll see whether our players are up for it or not.
