Predicted XI: Napoli (A)

Liverpool are back in Champions League action on Tuesday night when they face Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo.

Here’s TheAnfieldTalk’s @hannah_pinnock with who she thinks will start against Carlo Ancelotti’s side in Naples.


Alisson is still recovering from a long-term calf injury, so Adrian is set to keep is place a while longer. He put in an impressive performance against Newcastle this weekend, his extra training sessions over the international break seemingly paying off.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent is likely to keep is place, having played only one of England’s international games. With Robertson a doubt, it’s unlikely the Liverpool boss will change both full-backs for this game.

Joe Gomez

This game could be an opportunity for Klopp to give Matip a rest, although the Cameroonian didn’t go away for international duty. The 22-year-old impressed in the early stages of last season and may be given the chance to regain that form.

Virgil Van Dijk

Only injury could prevent the Dutch captain from starting and with him fit and firing, there is no doubt he’ll make the XI on Tuesday night.

James Milner

It’s possible Robertson may be fit to play in Naples but with Chelsea looming on Sunday, Klopp will be reluctant to take any risks. Milner was expected to start this game anyway, albeit in midfield, but he will most likely be filling in for the Scotland international.


A key figure in this Liverpool side, Fabinho will likely be starting against Napoli.

Jordan Henderson

The club captain was fully rested on Saturday afternoon after playing both of England’s Euro’s qualifiers. There is no doubt he’ll be leading the team out, especially with Milner (probably) filling in at left-back.

Gini Wijnaldum

I initially had Gini to be rested for this game, ahead of the big Premier League fixture against Chelsea at the weekend. But, with Milner potentially taking Robertson’s spot, Wijnaldum will most likely keep is place.

Roberto Firmino

The game at the weekend proved this man is undroppable.

Mohamed Salah

In good form, will surely be starting.

Sadio Mane

Also in the form of his life. Both Salah and Mane will be eager to get on the scoresheet and make amends for the disappointing result in Naples last year.
