On Wednesday night, Liverpool will travel to Naples to face Napoli in the Champions League

The German has some important decisions to make as his team begins its Champions League campaign. Alisson is the goalkeeper. When the game against Napoli is on the schedule, Liverpool fans never look forward to it. — September 6, 2022, Watch LFC (@Watch_LFC) Arthur, Thiago, Jota, and Matip are all undergoing training. Given the options available to Jurgen Klopp, predicting the Liverpool starting lineup to face Napoli is difficult, but Arthur could make his debut. The Reds will make the dreaded trip to Naples on Wednesday night to face one of their recent bogey teams. Liverpool’s starting lineup against Napoli Who will Klopp select for the upcoming game, with some players needing a rest and others needing valuable minutes in their legs? Alisson is expected to be the first-choice goalkeeper for league and Champions League games. To be honest, the 23-year-old appears exhausted after logging a lot of minutes over the last couple of seasons. While the Brazilian is likely to miss Carabao Cup and FA Cup matches this season, he will not be missing from the starting lineup for this one. Joe Gomez, right back Trent Alexander-worrying Arnold’s lack of form has received a lot of attention recently. There will be no Carvalho, Jones, Henderson, Ramsay, Konaté, Keita, or Oxlade-Chamberlain. Joel Matip, center back Virgil van Dijk, center back Joel Matip’s cameo appearance at Goodison Park is one of the few positives to come from the goalless draw. What he lacks in speed, he more than makes up for in positional intelligence and game reading. Andy Robertson, left back Due to a lack of true cover for his position, the England international has been forced to step onto the field multiple times. Defensive stability could be crucial for the Reds, and Gomez is a better option than Trent in that regard. If the injury situation at center back improves, Joe Gomez may be able to leave and give his teammate some much-needed rest. Fans are concerned about van Dijk’s inconsistent and unusual season thus far. Fabinho, Defensive Midfielder Klopp will be hoping that being left on the bench for the derby at the weekend rekindles Robbo’s fire. The Dutch captain will be looking to play himself into form after struggling to consistently pick out those big diagonals for which he is famous. Another player who is suffering from burnout will hopefully benefit from the occasional game spent on the bench. Despite replacing Kostas Tsimikas in the second half on Saturday, Klopp would have done so with this tricky match in mind. Jordan Henderson has been ruled out of the upcoming games due to a hamstring injury, which will limit Fabinho’s playing time. Because the captain is the only real backup in the holding midfield position, Klopp will have to ask the Brazilian to play again. Arthur is a defensive midfielder. Thiago Alcantara returned to training on Monday, potentially taking some of Fabinho’s defensive workload off his shoulders. I’m excited to see Arthur make his debut. Thiago is unlikely to start the game on Wednesday, but Liverpool did make a deadline-day signing that could come in. I’m excited for him. Arthur Melo, a loan signing, could be called up sooner than expected for the trip to Italy. September 6, 2022 — Samuel (@SamueILFC) xphwnu3CEC pic.twitter.com The number of fully fit midfielders at the club is also decreasing with each passing game. As previously stated, Arthur has the ability to sit in alongside his Brazilian international teammate and add some defensive stability. Arthur, having come from Serie A, will be familiar with the style of football Napoli plays and will be able to cope with the pace a little better. Another reason this makes sense to me is that Klopp switched formations in the second half against Everton, which makes me wonder if this is a sign of things to come. A change in the system would require only two midfielders instead of three. Roberto Firmino, attacking midfielder Firmino has been the club’s most dangerous goal threat in recent games. It would not be surprising to see him in Liverpool’s starting lineup against Napoli. Mo Salah, right wing On Saturday, Firmino appeared to have his own personal barrel with Jordan Pickford, forcing save after save from the keeper as he found plenty of space. Salah’s recent performances have been perplexing. This role behind a striker could suit the talented samba star because it allows him to drop deep to support his midfield while another player is up front. A confidence crisis, defenders figuring him out, or just bad luck? We’d love to see Mo Salah put on a show against Napoli tomorrow #LFC pic.twitter.com/dGiLC33j2b Such a consistent goal scorer appears to be unable to find any open space for a decent strike at goal. Luis Diaz, left wing Having taken on more of a creative role this season, the Egyptian will be desperate to get his name back in the spotlight for the right reasons. September 6, 2022 — Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) Diogo Jota, striker Luis Daz was inches away from becoming a hero on Merseyside after crashing a shot against Pickford’s post on Saturday. DAZ will look to add to his three goals for the season after being an energetic and hardworking spark for Klopp’s team this season. The Anfield faithful have been licking their lips since Diogo Jota returned to training last week. https://t.co/epv4uKYgZ2 #LFC 🔴 Last season, no Liverpool player scored more first-half goals than Diogo Jota. Jota has been somewhat forgotten despite being a consistent and reliable source of goals last season. With Jurgen Klopp’s team conceding first in ten of their last 13 games, the return of the Portugal international couldn’t come at a better time. Will this be Jurgen Klopp’s starting lineup in Naples, or will other players be substituted? September 6, 2022 — Keifer MacDonald (@KeiferMacd) As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and with Darwin Nez’s current situation, Klopp may opt for a man who is more likely to take any chance that comes his way.
