Mouthwatering Predicted XI v Napoli: Alisson, Fabinho, Salah all start

Posted by

This is the side we reckon will take the field against Napoli on Saturday…

It’s a very strong one and one that probably reflects the team Jurgen Klopp will pick against West Ham on Premier League Opening Day, give or take a few changes.

Alisson makes incredibly classy gesture to Loris Karius

In goal, Alisson will make his competitive debut and we can’t wait to see him in action.

It’s too soon for Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back, so Nathaniel Clyne will get the nod, while Andrew Robertson should play over Alberto Moreno.

With Joel Matip injured and Dejan Lovren still on leave, Joe Gomez will partner Virgil van Dijk at the back.

Naby Keita should appear at some stage, but we think it’ll be from the bench, due to his slight neck problem. As a result, we can see Fabinho holding, Xherdan Shaqiri giving licence to roam and one of Gini Wijnaldum or James Milner shoring up the centre of the park.

This allows Sadio Mane and Mo Salah their spots in wide forward positions, with Daniel Sturridge central.

We reckon Roberto Firmino will come on for the last half an hour, but start against Torino a few days later.
