Liverpool maintained their perfect start to the 2019-20 season by picking up a 3-1 win vs Newcastle United at home this past weekend in the Premier League.

So far the Reds have won every game they have played across all competitions and their fans will be hoping a repeat of the same when the Anfield outfit head to Italy for the Napoli vs Liverpool in the Champions League.

Napoli are currently fifth in the league table with six points and will be eager to pick up two back to back wins when Liverpool come to town.

The Italians have managed to a keep clean sheet in only a single match so far this season but on the other hand, they have also netted 9 goals in just 3 matches meaning the likes of Joel Matip and Robertson will be in for a tough test on Tuesday.

Reds team news vs Napoli:

The most important news in the Napoli vs Liverpool clash will be the injury to forward Divock Origi.

Origi started the match vs Newcastle but had to be replaced by Firmino after he twisted his ankle and it is more or less certain that the forward will not be part of the matchday squad on Tuesday.

This also means that Roberto Firmino will start upfront vs Napoli with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane operating down the flanks.

Oxlade Chamberlain started in midfield vs the Magpies but the England international should be rested on Tuesday as James Milner comes in to replace him.

Fabinho and Wijnaldum will keep their place in starting line-up but some reports claim Jordan Henderson might also come into the side. And if that happens then it will be Wijnaldum who will move back to the bench.

Trent Alexander Arnold might be rested as Joe Gomez comes into the side to play as the right-back.

Naby Keita is still recovering from his injury and the manager has confirmed that he will only return to full training only after the Napoli vs Liverpool clash.

Alisson Becker is yet to resume training meaning Adrian will play as the No 1 for Liverpool on Tuesday.
