Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Napoli in the Champions League

Liverpool left it late against Chelsea, with Daniel Sturridge scoring a sublime goal to end it 1-1 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It was a game of two halves as Chelsea dominated the first before Liverpool bounced back in the second. Both teams maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

Manager Jurgen Klopp will now turn his attention to the midweek Champions League clash against Napoli. The Reds beat PSG in the last European fixture and will be aiming to put in a strong performance in Italy.

Team News

Jurgen Klopp will be boosted by the return of Virgil Van Dijk, who featured against Chelsea at the weekend. The manager has also seen Dejan Lovren return to action and the Croatian will be available for this fixture as well.

Probable Liverpool XI

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Formation: 4-3-3

Alisson Becker (GK)

Alisson was superb against the Blues this weekend. He will continue in goal for this game.

Alisson

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

Arnold was excellent in the Champions League last season. He will surely play a crucial role for the Reds in this fixture.

Virgil Van Dijk (CB)

Probably the only unplayable man in the squad, Van Dijk has been flawless so far.

Dejan Lovren (CB)

Lovren could partner Van Dijk at the back in order to provide Gomez with some rest before facing Manchester City next weekend.

Andrew Robertson (LB)

The left-back just seems to be getting better and better as the time goes. He is a gem of a left-back.

James Milner (RCM)

Milner is more than capable of playing multiple games in a week and he is probably the only one who can do it effortlessly.

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

Wijnaldum should continue to start in the middle of the park after impressing in his new role this season.

Naby Keita (LCM)

Keita was rested against Chelsea and his work rate was definitely missed against the Blues. But Klopp could start him against the Italian outfit.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

The Egyptian has failed to live up to his standards after hitting the heights of last season. Nevertheless, he is too dangerous going forward.

Mohamed Salah

Roberto Firmino (ST)

Always a hard worker and probably the first name on the teamsheet after the Brazilian scored the winning goal against PSG.

Sadio Mane (LW)

Mane has slightly faded in the last two games but he is still a very potent force going forward.
