Liverpool have been defeated today after meeting Napoli scouring 1-0 against Liverpool in today’s EPL match October 3rd 2018.
For the first time since his appointment, Jurgen Klopp has lost a group game in Europe.
After Klopp’s victory in the last minute against Paris Saint-Germain, Lorenzo Insigne condemned Liverpool to defeat in the Stadio San Paolo in the 90thminute.
It had been coming. Substitute Dries Mertens had twice gone close, including a volley off the crossbar. For much of the game Liverpool were well protected at the back, Virgil van Dijk excelling until caught out of position by Jose Callejon whose cross sparked wild celebrations.
For Carlo Ancelotti it was a tactical triumph, a cautious, drab game bereft of meaningful incident until the hosts gambled in the closing stages. Liverpool could never penetrate, their front three again suffering a frustrating night.
