Liverpool fall to late Champions League defeat at Napoli

"The team did well throughout the game, we never lost control, were always very focused, above all when defending and allowed Liverpool practically nothing".

Speaking to BT Sport, Klopp said: "We had our moments, but too often the formation was not right or we moved in the wrong spaces".

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita was rushed to hospital for a heart scan after being forced off during Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Napoli.

"They did well; they were calm and played the ball around and waited for the moments".

"I think we timed it well", said former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach Ancelotti. They had a good game, we didn't, that's what they deserved the three points.

"It gives a lot of character to the team and it's great we kept the same mentality from the start to the end". If we had scored a few minutes earlier, we would have had more time suffering!'

"The first half was kind of OK, but second half was not good enough". It's always a bad sign to say when your goalkeeper is your best player.

English Premier League match report Chelsea v Liverpool 29 September 2018
Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has predicted the scoreline of the Premier League game between Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday. Hazard scored a brilliant victor in Chelsea FC's 2-1 win over Liverpool FC in the League Cup third round on Wednesday night.

"A big part of that performance was my fault for sure, but I need at least one night to watch it again and see what was the fault".

Klopp refused to blame an intense sequence of fixtures for his team's subdued display and insisted there would be no repeat when Manchester City visit Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday.

"The start of the game was OK", he said.

Ancelotti made a surprising tactical selection ahead of kick-off by bringing in defender Nikola Maksimovic for just his 20th Napoli appearance in more than two years, as the Serie A side used a system that alternated between a three and four-man defence. "It is absolutely intense since the last worldwide break".

"We have done it better this season, so we can do it - but we have to do it every game". That happens. We don't have to think about intensity.

"It would've been hard any way at any time of the season - it is always hard". Then we will prepare for Sunday.
