Liverpool really shouldn’t be worried about any side we’ve drawn in the Champions League, because they’re all petrified of us!
So much so that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has claimed he’ll make a complaint to UEFA, because we’re too good to be a Pot 3 team – declaring it “A huge mystery”.
De Laurentiis on #Napoli's #UCL group: "I'll have to ask #UEFA for an explanation: #LFC reached the Final so what were they doing in Pot 3? It's a huge mystery" https://t.co/FVgF7X1TJo pic.twitter.com/NKXJqiAdvN

PSG and Red Star Belgrade are also in Group C, but providing we hit anywhere near the levels we did in the competition last season, we should progress.
Our first game will arguably be the most glamorous of the lot, as we host PSG at Anfield, before travelling to Napoli a fortnight later.
If we can pick up points in these first two games, either three or four, we’ll be in a good position as we have two games against Red Star where we’d hope to collect six more.
The key will be combining Premier League wins with managing our European competition at the same time.
