Liverpool must give Fabinho a chance to shine against Napoli

The 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev was another near miss for the Reds under Klopp, with Liverpool having also lost the EFL Cup and Europa League finals in 2016.

Ancelotti hailed Klopp's Liverpool as one of the best teams in Europe ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League clash in Naples.

"I knew I'd see him again sooner or later, and obviously I'll have a coffee ready for him". It's not decisive, but we've already dropped two points against Red Star.

"Saying all these nice things about me before a game - it's nice, obviously, but it's tactics". Against Paris Saint-Germain, we saw Sturridge playing in a way we didn't see before, defending, [and] he switched positions with one of the front three and did their job.

When asked - in relation to the current power struggle between Pogba and Mourinho - how he thinks player/manager relationships have changed, Klopp replied: "I'm not as smart as Carlo Ancelotti, but I'm smart enough to not answer this question in these times".

"We hope to play a good game, cause them problems, and get three points in the most hard group of all", added Insigne, who recalled he scored his first Champions League goal against Borussia Dortmund, then managed by Klopp, five years ago.

Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne, who has scored five times this season with three in last three, singled out Roberto Firmino as Liverpool's key man. Of course it's a really important week, but I think the period after the global break we already knew that it was going to be really important because we're going to play against top opponents.

Everything! I think they have a really good team.

"[Staying in Rome] went through my mind a lot because I was so happy in Rome, but when a player decides where to play, it's a much bigger discussion".

'I did some interviews (with Italian TV) and they all were so positive, ' said Klopp. I'm supporting Napoli tomorrow, but I'm feeling a bit of trepidation for a few things I'm sure he'll oblige, because I'd like to get a photo with him and also for him to sign the Reus shirt. At that time he was a left winger and scored a lot of goals, he was really important for us as a team.

Sturridge, however, has fought back following a disappointing loan spell at West Bromwich Albion, scoring four goals from seven games this term.

And Red fans were extremely expeditious to take to Twitter to proclaim their delight at the centre-back slotting right back in to the Liverpool back-line in what is set to be Jurgen Klopp's sternest test of the season so far.
