Liverpool will be looking to secure their passage to the knockout stages of the Champions League tomorrow night when they take on Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli side at Anfield.

Manager Jurgen Klopp updated fans on the condition of Mohamed Salah in his press conference earlier today, saying: “Mo looks really good. He looked really good in training the day before yesterday especially, after the game. It was really good.

“Yesterday we didn’t do too much, so we will see today – but I’m not worried about it.”

The German boss also touched on Naby Keita’s possible involvement, stating that the Guinea international is back in training following an illness at the weekend.

Defender Andy Robertson was also in attendance at the press conference, and he spoke about the potential challenges the reds will face up against Napoli, he said: “The manager (Carlo Ancelotti) is a very good one, tactically and the way they play and set-up is very good and that’s down to him.

“But also they have top-quality players and that’s probably why the games against us have been so close. But we know we can cause anyone problems as well and it’s up to us to be at 100 per cent tomorrow night and if we are, I believe we will cause them problems.

“Whether it’s enough remains to be seen but I believe that if we are at 100 per cent and we’re firing on all cylinders then we can beat anyone, and Napoli are no different to that.”

The Scottish left back looks likely to start after returning from an ankle problem during the international break, and Klopp stated that following Salah’s return aswell, the reds now face no more serious injury worries, excluding Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne.

Elsewhere in Group E, a victory for Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg over bottom placed Genk would mean that only a win would be enough to see Liverpool qualify tomorrow night. However, a slip-up against the Italian giants would make for a nervy night for the reds when they take on Red Bull Salzburg away from home on the 10th of December in the final game of the group stages.
