The View from Italy: What can Liverpool expect against Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli?

Maurizio Sarri left a huge impression at the Stadio San Paolo and'Sarrismo has serious cachet in Italy

Maurizio Sarri left a huge impression at the Stadio San Paolo and ‘Sarrismo’ has serious cachet in Italy

Liverpool play with three central midfielders.

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted their pre-season friendly hammering by Liverpool in Dublin highlighted exactly how not to play against Jurgen Klopp's side. If you play tennis and your forehand is good but the next day your forehand is not there, you think, "What is it?" I know you will make a fuss of it, but that's football.

The England global scored a stunning equaliser late on at Stamford Bridge and scored another fine effort during the defeat to Chelsea in the League Cup last week but I still think Firmino will keep his place tomorrow.

The Stadio San Paolo - even when derided by Napoli's own chairman - is one of Europe's great venues and this is likely to be a much trickier test for the Reds and a better indicator of their credentials than victory over a limp Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield.

Sulawesi quake chaos: We haven't eaten for days, say Indonesia tsunami survivors
As of now, the official death toll is 844 people. "We will start the mass burial of victims, to avoid the spread of disease". Indonesia's Directorate General of Corrections said that inmates escaped from three over-capacity detention facilities.

His last game (at Chelsea) was really good - he was in the positions but then the last two balls were not too cool. "We won't be able to boss the game for its entirety, but we need to improve the way we control things at hard times, which you are bound to face against sides of such a high level".

"They have a lot of strong players, even the ones on the bench", said the Italian worldwide. I'm supporting Napoli tomorrow, but I'm feeling a bit of trepidation for a few things I'm sure he'll oblige, because I'd like to get a photo with him and also for him to sign the Reus shirt.

Even more so if the hosts play as they did in the first 25 minutes at Juventus when they produced some awesome attacking football with great combinations and intensity against a well-organised team, who were made to suffer as a result.

"We have still good boys who are not even in the squad in the moment", said the Liverpool boss.

FBI should conduct ‘real investigation’ into Kavanaugh, Flake says in Boston
Republicans have 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and can not afford to lose more than one vote on confirmation. As the investigation is not a criminal one, the FBI will not say whether they believe the allegations are true.

The first difference is up front with Arkadiusz Milik, not Dries Mertens, partnering Lorenzo Insigne in attack.

A glance at both team sheets from the night shows just how far the two clubs have come in terms of on field quality, while Marek Hamsik was the only player on either side who is likely to play on Wednesday night.

"That's the goal for us". The team scores goals for fun, but unlike under Sarri, they can be got at defensively.

Jurgen Klopp has held talks with Mohamed Salah to reassure his star forward that a testing start to the season will not become a prolonged dip.
