Liverpool predicted XI v. Napoli – Salah to return

Posted by

Liverpool are set to host Serie A outfit Napoli in the Champions League this week as the Reds hope to right to wrong that was our loss at the San Paolo earlier this year.

Should Jurgen Klopp’s men do the job, the Reds will remain at the top of the table in their group and will be almost guaranteed qualification. By that I mean we’d need to lose all of our remaining games an Red Bull Salzburg would need to go on a rampage.

Winger Mohamed Salah is expected to return to the squad, after sitting out of Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in the week.

And Fabinho is nailed on to start as the Brazilian has totted up enough yellow cards to be suspended from our fixture against Brighton.

With that said, here is how we predict Klopp will line up against Napoli…

In net we’ll have Alisson, and to support him a back line of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson.

In midfield, the aforementioned Fabinho will be joined by Jordan Henderson I actually think the now-fit Naby Keita will be given the nod in the Champions League.

Up top, we’ll have Salah reuniting with his partners in crime Bobby Firmino and Sadio Mane.

It’ll be a grand affair against the Italians – two very talented sides, but this is just our prediction, and there is nothing stopping Klopp from sticking Adrian at left-back!
