How Liverpool are expected to lineup against Napoli

J

ordan Henderson has become the latest Liverpool injury casualty, suffering a hamstring problem during the recent win over Newcastle United.

As a result, the club captain will likely miss three weeks of action.

The start to the 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 niggles.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, as they return to the Champions League against Napoli.

Thiago Alcantara could be involved in at least some capacity following his return to training, although Fabio Carvalho is a doubt and Curtis Jones will be assessed.

Darwin Nunez made his return during Saturday’s draw with Everton following suspension, while fellow summer signing Arthur Melo was on the bench.

Diogo Jota is also back in contention, adding to Klopp’s options going forward.

Liverpool predicted XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Elliott, Arthur; Salah, Nunez, Diaz

Date and time: Wednesday September 7, 2022

Venue: Diego Armando Maradona Stadium
