Napoli coach Ancelotti speaks about Salah ahead of Liverpool clash

Napoli coach Ancelotti speaks about Salah ahead of Liverpool clash

As Salah sits on three goals in six league games, compared to his four of last season, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said Monday Night Football the winger's form is being unfairly critisied. 'Be relaxed, completely relaxed, because there is no need for anything else, ' said Klopp.

Sturridge has endured an injury-ravaged three years since Klopp took charge.

Such issues will probably be resolved given time, but there are practical concerns for both Salah and Klopp to address. "Now, the timing is ideal".

"We told him he couldn't let anyone catch him as top scorer".

Sturridge's return further strengthens a squad already bolstered by the summer signings of Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Attack: Mohamed Salah has failed to hit the heights of last season so far this campaign and he was substituted midway through the second half against Chelsea but the Egyptian worldwide is still one of Liverpool's most important players and I think he'll retain his spot against Napoli.

"I have an unfavourable precedent with him - I'm a bit surprised about him being picked for this game", Ancelotti said at a news conference ahead of his side's first home game in their current Champions League campaign, after they were held to a goalless draw at Red Star Belgrade in their opening fixture.

"It's an experience we had", Ancelotti shrugged.

"How can I say, it was not my best performance personally".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists that his team are in good shape and playing with rhythm, and should look to exploit it when they take on Napoli on Wednesday, without thinking too much about their next Premier League match against Manchester City.

However, Klopp now has the luxury of making changes with City in mind without fearing the consequences. We saw at the weekend Liverpool being unable to control the match at Chelsea like they've done in previous weeks and that will give Napoli heart and lessons to use.

"He's not in great form, but I don't really think he's in bad form either", Carragher said.

"When I came back, because I came back a few days later, he did really well, even better than the years before".
