Napoli v Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp dismisses Carlo Ancelotti praise as 'tactics'

"I like Carlo Ancelotti, I respect him a lot".

According to Metro, Hazard said to Sturridge, "To be fair, it's not bad, it's not a bad goal".

"We hope to play a good game, cause them problems, and get three points in the most hard group of all", added Insigne, who recalled he scored his first Champions League goal against Borussia Dortmund, then managed by Klopp, five years ago. That happens. He lost balls in those situations previous year.

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti expressed surprise at UEFA's choice of Viktor Kassai as referee for his side's Champions League clash with Liverpool on Wednesday.

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. He wants to try to bring the very nice fella out of me.

"I spent two special years in Rome, my daughter was born there, I have many friends there even out of football".

"It was because my behaviour in the Bundesliga was not too good before that". It was, how you say, my last time when I was a bit too excited.

"Saying all these nice things about me before a game - it's nice, obviously, but it's tactics". It's the only way I understand it.

Meanwhile, Georginio Wijnaldum has hailed the resurgence of teammate Daniel Sturridge and backed him to receive a recall to the England squad, having not been part of Gareth Southgate's team that reached the World Cup semifinals.

The Egypt worldwide was substituted during the second half of Liverpool's draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, where Daniel Sturridge scored a stunning late equaliser.

"I knew I'd see him again sooner or later, and obviously I'll have a coffee ready for him".

"During the season he will show that he is really important for us, not only because of his goals, but also the way he is playing". He's really in good shape, fit and in form.

Attack: Mohamed Salah has failed to hit the heights of last season so far this campaign and he was substituted midway through the second half against Chelsea but the Egyptian global is still one of Liverpool's most important players and I think he'll retain his spot against Napoli.
