Lorenzo Insigne scored the only goal as LFC lost in the last minute against Napoli – but Reds fans were quick to urge the team to move on quickly.
With a huge game at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League to come, the general message was simple: move on and make sure this was a one-off.
None of those in red shirts came out of the game with much credit, as Jurgen Klopp’s players failed to muster a single proper chance – and this time there was no Daniel Sturridge wonder strike to let them off the hook.

Klopp could have made changes earlier but sometimes bad performances happen – this was just one of those nights.
The following tweets summed up the mood of Reds fans well at the final whistle.
A rare off day for the lads! It happens, that's football! On to Sunday now! Up the Reds. #LFC 🔴

Exactly what we deserved. Would’ve been lucky to escape with a draw, Napoli much the better side. Poor performance all round.

Strange game that. We weren’t up to it at all. Can’t have complaints about the result. Looked like we’d have been very happy with a point from the start.

Shocker of a performance that… pathetic. Hopefully the focus is on City, otherwise it could be a long Sunday evening… #LFC #NAPLIV #UCL

Not done ourselves any favours getting out of the group, but with back-to-back games against Red Star, we could have it done by game week 4.

Liverpool will raise their game against Man City this weekend, tonight’s performance could be a blessing in disguise to get the team ready for a crucial match at Anfield on Sunday.
