  • Napoli coach Ancelotti speaks about Salah ahead of Liverpool clash

"I am pretty sure the reasons will be obvious and then we will sort that but tonight we were not good enough and normally if you are not good enough you lose games".

"Big win against a great team!"

Liverpool, meanwhile, played as if they would settle for a point after they beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2. That happens. We don't have to think about intensity.

"The first half was kind of OK, but second half was not good enough".

The German was left frustrated by his attacking trio of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane as the Reds failed to register a single shot on target in the competition for the first time in 12 years.

"It's always a bad sign if you have to say your goalkeeper was your best player, but that was obvious tonight", said Klopp.

The Reds reached half time without registering a shot on target for only the second time this calendar year, but there was a bit of work for Alisson Becker to do when he collected an Arkadiusz Milik effort on the turn at the second attempt. "I am really fine to give the credit to Napoli, but I think we had a big part in it as well".

"And you have seen it has been absolutely intense since the last worldwide break with the games we've had - twice Chelsea and stuff like that, coming to Napoli, playing PSG and now we have the game on Sunday against Man City".

Actors such as Aamir Khan, Karan Johar, Anupam Kher and Soha Ali Khan posted tributes for Krishna Raj Kapoor on social media . Bollywood's first family, the Kapoors bid a final farewell to Krishna Raj Kapoor who died on Monday of a cardiac arrest.

"In the 89th minute we make another tactical mistake, we didn't close the gap between Joe [Gomez] and Virgil [van Dijk], and then we can not react any more".

Liverpool were also handicapped by an injury to Guinean midfielder Naby Keita inside the first 20 minutes.

Liverpool host Manchester City in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash on Sunday.

"It would've been hard any way at any time of the season - it is always hard".

"You prepare games in your head and then it's all down to interpretation".

"Then we have the crowd at our backs".

"But on Sunday that - at least - will be 100 per cent different".
