Liverpool 1-0 Napoli

UEFA Champions League: Liverpool 1-0 Napoli UCL: Mohamed Salah outshines Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly to secure Liverpool’s round of 16 spot

One season goes well, one season a little bit more hard.

The 28-year-old may not, therefore, be relishing Sunday's showdown with Liverpool's back-in-form forward Mohamed Salah, who scored a hat-trick last week in a 4-0 win at Bournemouth that sent Juergen Klopp's side to the top of the table and struck the vital victor against Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Liverpool have a poor recent record against their rivals and are without a win in their last eight league meetings, including the last four at Anfield.

"But if we don't defend the whole pitch like we defended, Ali can not make 20 saves like the last one".

"We are now head and shoulders above Manchester United and we should take the game to them, while being patient".

Indeed, there was nervousness around Anfield and despite Napoli's anonymity in the second-half, there was a feeling that they would make Liverpool pay for their missed chances.

I wish I could see more but that doesn't mean I can't form an opinion of my own. I'd also quite like a trip to Barcelona in March - who wouldn't?!

That fast pace kept up in a game that had greater tension placed upon it after news filtered through of an early PSG goal in Belgrade but with the greater sense of urgency on the hosts, they found it tough to carve out real clearcut opportunities until shortly after the half hour mark. An ageing side they would provide little resistance to a fast flowing Liverpool.

This may seem like a bit of a boring answer given Liverpool had the exact same last-sixteen tie last season.

"I think the year before I came (2015/16) Liverpool finished eighth".

Liverpool demolished Porto away in the first leg last season and to have the experience and muscle memory of thrashing these opponents before can only be a useful thing.

They're at their best point since Klopp left them, but we're at our best point since Klopp joined.

Life-long fan Mike Kearney has attended every home game for around five or six years now, and in an exclusive interview with SPORTbible, he explained how his cousin often interprets key moments at Anfield.

"We spoke about the atmosphere that can be created within this stadium and we've seen it on many a night before in Europe".
