The team looked tired. Lack of initiatives and made poor decisions. Can't seems to pass properly and very error prone for many of the more reliable players like VVD and Milner. We didn't have much chance to release the ball to the winger to cross. Poor play from the back due to the agile play by Napoli. They shifted from pressing to parking bus fast and efficient. Later go see Nouman analysis...

I just feel that the few high profile matches and travelling is taking a toil on the players. Hopefully we are back to our usual self this weekend.

We pressed. Prolly jus not in the intensity we liked.

If you watched the match, napoli got out of our pressing with clever runs into space, positioning, accurate range of passing and muscular strength. Many occasions we failed to contain their midfield. Napoli would also bypass the midfield with long balls behind our mid or def cover because we played high line like them. Needless to say, we couldn't do the same. Outplayed!

We lost heavily on the tactics part. Klopp also mentioned it in post match. This was a game that is not countered with man for man sub. We lost Keita early without klopp's plan of an attack involving him. So we actually couldn't see the original plan klopp has for Napoli. But going forward, klopp can't find a proper way to play his football.

Klopp was right about chasing after Fekir.
Unfortunately, he did not have a Plan B replacement when the medical failed.
Now, we dun have a ball carrier to the front three.
Not sure Shaq is the suitable candidate to perform this role.
Or else we are really game over with no service to front three.

Is that the reason why we are chasing the MC guy from Arsenal ?

Naby Keita could play against Manchester City as Liverpool midfielder is given all-clear from major injury scare

There were fears the midfielder had suffered a serious injury in the defeat to Napoli

Naby Keita has been given the all clear after a major injury scare in Naples...and could even play this Sunday.

The Liverpool midfielder was stretchered off with what was feared a serious back injury against Napoli in the Champions' League.

Keita complained of 'severe pain' in his back and was taken to a hospital near the Stadio San Paolo for assessments, as a precaution against complications with his back.

But after tests, he was cleared to return to the team hotel, and will fly back to Liverpool with the squad this morning.

Keita will have further checks with physios at the club's training ground this afternoon, and if he is not suffering too much pain, will be allowed to resume training tomorrow in preparation for the top of the table Premier League clash with Manchester City .

Maybe the saying is right, can only really concentrate on just one competition.
If that is the case, I would say make sure do well and doing it right in the PL matches. I have seen them lifting the CL, FA and League Cup trophies, the only missing one to date will be the EPL trophy.

He collapsed before in Germany

that means hes actually not suited to fully execute klopp's high intensity pressing over 90mins

i doubt so... our medical team is just being extra careful.
no other euro leagues play through winter. only EPL.
no other euro leagues have crazy Xmas/New Year playing schedule. Only EPL.
not all players who flourish in other euro leagues can adapt & flourish in EPL so quickly, like Firmino and Salah

Anyone noticed Insigne was left alone in the penalty box with lots of space More than once in the 2nd half... Clyne shouldíve been sent on in 60-70 min

It is pretty confirmed that we will not be going back for Fekir.
I think he is hurt by us deep deep after doing all the photo session and interview before the medical.
Dun blame him for rejecting us if FSG suddenly want to take the risk.
It took Lar-Kar-Z one season to get his mojo zeroed for BPL.
He was on the verge of being a laughing stock last season.

However, we may need to built up the midfield wall to get back the ball or else we will be run over very much in the middle.
And Keita and Fab may need one season to get up to the pace.
Keita was also losing the ball at the beginning of the match.

Prolly defensively stop gap
But with Clyne... We ain't gonna score that goal to win.
I'm still thinking if we played long ball pressing, we might trouble them. Than again maybe not.

It was a masterclass from Ancelotti. Napoli one touched their way through a very limp front 3 press and ran the channels down the lines. Sarri's chelsea almost did the same thing against us. Pep can learn so much from this game.

I am confident we would be fine in our ucl group stage, the next 2 ucl game is against red star and we should be getting 6 pts from them.

Maybe a flat 4-4-2 would have coped better with that Napoli midfield. Or a diamond 4-4-2. With hendo, wij, milner and shaq spearheading that diamond.
