Liverpool XI vs Napoli: Starting lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Champions League game today

Liverpool remain without Jordan Henderson for tonight’s opening Champions League clash against Napoli.

The Reds’ club captain will likely miss three weeks of action as the result of a hamstring injury suffered in the last-gasp win over Newcastle at Anfield.

The start to the new season has been a frustrating one for Jurgen Klopp, who was forced into the transfer market uncharacteristically late having seen a number of his players suffer with various issues.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, as they return to Europe’s premier club competition in Naples.

Thiago Alcantara is on the bench following his return to training, although Fabio Carvalho is not involved.
