Manchester City Game Won't Influence Team Selection Against Napoli - Jurgen Klopp

It was a sight that just a few months ago would have been unthinkable - Liverpool a goal down in a big game, and Mohamed Salah hauled off by Jurgen Klopp.

Salah's output is a good return from a player who has carried Liverpool's main threat in nearly every game this season. His game is really good.

"The good news for us is we're not too bad as well, so that's why I'm looking forward to the game".

In the Anfield return, Napoli took the lead through Ezequiel Lavezzi, but half-time substitute Steven Gerrard scored a hat-trick in the last 15 minutes to secure a 3-1 win.

Sturridge, however, has fought back following a disappointing loan spell at West Bromwich Albion, scoring four goals from seven games this term. It is not that interesting.

A key gauge of Salah's form can be found in the dressing room and the only words about goals that have been put his way have come from Wijnaldum. It's also worth consideration that arguably the main flaw in the "expected goal" metric, which suggests Salah has been performing well, is that it doesn't sufficiently take into account the positioning of defenders or the likelihood of shots being blocked. There was, though, a serious point.

This has been familiar this season for Salah: In the 1-0 home victory over Brighton, Salah fired two second-half efforts crazily wide of goal, to the extent that it was hard to deduce whether Salah was attempting to open up his body and curl the ball inside the far post or trying to strike across the ball in an attempt to get some reverse swing away from the goalkeeper.

It should also put the pressure on other retailers to at least match Amazon's minimum wage pledge if they aren't doing so already. Amazon's pay varies by location, so the increase could be between $3 and $5 an hour, depending on the state.

"I think they have become one of the strongest teams in Europe".

"How can I say, it was not my best performance personally. We need him desperately and he is fit". He knows he can do it'. There was a wry grin from the German, however, when Ancelotti's comments were relayed to him on Tuesday night.

Klopp was sent off on his last visit to Napoli's Stadio San Paolo when Borussia Dortmund manager, in 2013, for berating the fourth official.

"I've told him that he's got to get more hat-tricks - I've told him that!"

Jurgen Klopp refused to be drawn in on the bitter feud between Manchester United's Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba after the Liverpool manager was asked about the nature of his relationship with his players. "And as we say in Germany, he's obviously a smart fox", said Klopp.

Ancelotti recalled this match saying that it was an experience that taught his team a lot of things and that they won't be using the same strategy when they meet Liverpool again. It's nice but it is tactics, it starts already. He wants to try to bring the very nice fella out of me. Klopp enjoyed it. We smoked a cigarette in front of the TV and then [Lorenzo] Insigne scored to make it 2-0.
