Napoli 1 Liverpool 0: Insigne secures deserved win at the end

Lorenzo Insigne scores a 90th-minute victor to hand Napoli a dramatic late 1-0 triumph over Liverpool in their Champions League Group C clash at the Stadio San Paolo.

Naby Keïta was taken to hospital after being carried off the field on a stretcher suffering from severe pain in his back during the first half of Liverpool's 1-0 Champions League defeat.

"No attempts on target, I don't remember when that happened last time", said Klopp.

Lorenzo Insigne's goal 30 seconds from the end of normal time only confirmed what had been threatened for most of the match as Klopp's side were second-best throughout.

"Now tonight, we didn't perform and that's how football works - against a good side in the Champions League, you lose". "I don't know what exactly". That's why we're all so disappointed, because we expect more and to bring more.

Liverpool, meanwhile, played as if they would settle for a point after they beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2. "It didn't happen but we still have four games to go".

Liverpool's best effort came when Egyptian Salah shot wide after the break. "I am really fine to give the credit to Napoli, but I think we had a big part in it as well".

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

"In the 89th minute we make another tactical mistake, we didn't close the gap between Joe (Gomez) and Virg (Virgil van Dijk), and then we can not react anymore".

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.

It looked as though Liverpool would hold out for a valuable away point which would have kept them top of Group C, but Napoli finally struck with just 30 seconds remaining of normal time as Insigne applied a simple finish from close range after Alisson had been taken out of the game by Callejon's cross. You could see tonight, Napoli used the atmosphere and we couldn't calm it down with our performance.
