Liverpool vs. Napoli live stream: Watch Champions League

Liverpool vs. Napoli live stream: Watch Champions League

They can't get Manchester City until the quarter-finals at the earliest and, after hammering them 5-1 at the same stage of last season's Champions League, I reckon Pep Guardiola's side will not relish a European re-match with Liverpool.

Alisson's reflexes to deny Arkadiusz Milik left an impression as lingering as Mohamed Salah's winning goal.

"When people are shouting at me I take it because they want to make me better and their mistake they take it as well if I shout to them".

That is significant because Klopp's style of football is extremely taxing, but it becomes particularly important now they are contenders in the two biggest competitions going into the second half of the season.

"That was the lifesaver tonight". He added: "It was not only one save". He helped us a lot. When he comes out for crosses he is outstanding.

2 - Young Boys have the worst shot conversion rate of any side in the Champions League this season (3.1) - just two of their 64 shots have resulted in goals.

"And, yes, that save was just incredible, but if we don't defend the whole pitch like we defended, Ali can not make 20 saves like the last one".

"He did it. Incredible, unbelievable".

"You need to be hard with each other".

The Champions League group decider was Alisson's 22nd appearance for Jürgen Klopp's team following his £65m summer move from Roma. This game was wonderful, unbelievable.

"The boys, I know, are desperate to stay in the competition". With each part of their body, they were in that game.

"Our offensive defending and pressing was some of the best I ever saw". While the highly rated Senegal global tried to contain the sixth best player in the world, it was one of their meetings on the left side of Napoli's defence that birthed the decisive goal. By finishing as runners-up in Group C, Liverpool could face the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the next round, and such a task will be so much more hard without their talisman in central defence. You could see this little bit of relief and then Napoli was there. But Alisson was out quickly to make the block, and Liverpool survived to go through.

"That's the first real question we've got to ask about Koulibaly, the centre-half".

"We have no say in that", Klopp said. I am not sure a manager could be prouder of a team than I am. How could I sit here and ask for any team? It should, in truth, have won more easily but survived a nervy final few minutes to go through as the group's second-place finisher.

Only Marek Hamsik remains at Napoli from the team that faced Liverpool in the Europa League eight years ago.

Defender Joel Matip was taken to hospital as a precaution to have a shoulder injury looked at while Trent Alexander-Arnold (foot) and James Milner were also forced off.

Barcelona and Real Madrid will finish top of their groups and they could be joined by Atletico Madrid, who now have a two-point lead over second-placed Borussia Dortmund in Group A, yet Valencia will continue playing in the Europa League as they sit comfortably in third in Group H.
