Liverpool vs Napoli LIVE: James Milner and Ibrahima Konate start for Reds at Anfield as Darwin Nunez benched by Jurgen Klopp as hosts seek big win to top group

    Liverpool welcome Napoli to Anfield tonight as they look to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at the weekend. 

    The Reds were beaten 2-1 by Leeds, losing at home in the Premier League for the first time in 70 games. 

    Jurgen Klopp’s side have made a poor start to the season domestically but in Europe they have already qualified for the last 16, winning their last four in a row.

    Napoli have gone one better, winning all of their games so far and topping Group A. The Italian side are also top and unbeaten in Serie A. 

    In their previous meeting, Luciano Spalletti’s side won 4-1 after an emphatic performance at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

    That result means Liverpool must beat Napoli by four goals or more if they want to finish top of the group.
