Our problem, or Napoli’s excellence? Hodgson vs Klopp - expected line-ups from both? How bad were Liverpool in the first half? Were they fortunate to go in level? Any tactical switches after the break? Mane’s goal was vital, and helped us control the first 20 mins of the second half. Should Firmino have killed the game off with his first big chance? Zaha scores, who was at fault? Mentality monsters score a late goal to secure victory.
