Klopp: 'Napoli closed the centre'

Jurgen Klopp admits Carlo Ancelotti’s tactical adjustments made life difficult for Liverpool. “We were not brilliant, but we put pressure on.”

Dries Mertens had opened the scoring from a tight angle, but Dejan Lovren nodded in a corner for the 1-1 Champions League draw at Anfield.

This means Liverpool still have a one-point lead at the top of the group, but Napoli’s final game is with Genk, whereas the reigning champions must travel to RB Salzburg.

Ancelotti: 'Liverpool can be controlled'

Carlo Ancelotti explained his tactical choices after the 1-1 draw with Liverpool. “They have quality, but become more controllable in reduced spaces.”

Dries Mertens saw his early strike cancelled out by Dejan Lovren’s header on a corner, but it was perhaps asking too much to get a win at Anfield, where Liverpool haven’t lost in Europe for five years.
