Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction, Team News vs Napoli (UCL)


Liverpool host Napoli tomorrow night in Champions League group stage play, with ambitions of trying to avenge the reverse fixture in September that saw Carlo Ancelotti’s mean score twice late, and in doing so, give the current reigning Euro champions a loss in their first match in defense of their title.

The holders have since bounced back nicely, and win here would book their passage through to the knockout round. The stakes are the same for the Serie A side too, as they’re in a win and you’re in scenario as well. Overall, it’s been a very balanced series, and it’s seen two wins apiece for each side, and a draw.

In turning towards the Reds team news for this one, Fabinho will miss Saturday’s Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion due to suspension, so look for him to get a start in this one. Manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that stellar winger Mohamed Salah is fully fit, and that leaves the club with no new injury concerns.

In the only injury absentee is a long term one, central defender Joel Matip.
