Liverpool Football Club will face Napoli in their Champions League group stage opener.

The Reds go into the European campaign as holders after overcoming Tottenham in the final back in May but will be wary of the threat posed by Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

The Partenopei edged a tight clash 1-0 here nearly 12 months ago which left Liverpool with a tough task to qualify before a 1-0 reverse at Anfield saw them progress.

Having won all five of their opening Premier League games, Klopp’s men come into this match in devastating form and they will be itching to set things right at the San Paolo to keep their run going.

Divock Origi limped off during the 3-1 win over Newcastle and is expected to miss the trip to Naples, with Rhian Brewster called up from the Under-23s to fly with the senior squad to Italy.

Aside from that, Klopp has nearly a full squad to select from although the German coach is unlikely to detract too far from his strongest line-up.

It remains to be seen whether Klopp will continue with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back or deploy Joe Gomez instead.

For the visitors, Arkadiusz Milik could miss out through injury but Lorenzo Insigne is set to return after recovering from an injury problem.
