We need to make the next step in our development'. Sometimes it resembles Pep Guardiola' tiki-taka from his Barcelona days, but it is more specific.

Liverpool are missing only Adam Lallana and long-term absentee Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from their travelling squad, meaning Klopp has all but a full strength team from which to choose.

First, when I played with Dries he already showed he was a good player. Ancelotti prefers the lanky Pole because he is physically stronger than Mertens, while he views the Belgian as an alternative to Insigne because they are quite similar players.

Sturridge enjoyed his most productive campaign to date under Rodgers' leadership, scoring 24 goals from 33 games in 2013-14 - nearly double his next best seasonal tally.

Klopp replaced Rodgers - who has since taken charge of Celtic - at Liverpool three years ago.

On Napoli forward Mertens, who he played with at PSV...

Everything! I think they have a really good team.

"Liverpool have improved a lot, they managed to reach the final previous year and they started the season very well".

@ReecesPiece_ suggested that "he's been the best defender in the league this season without a doubt".

Manchester United lose 1-3 to West Ham to deepen Mourinho woes
And for Manchester United , their problems were written large on a torturous afternoon at West Ham yesterday after a 3-1 defeat. They have played three and lost as many so far.

Who should Liverpool be anxious about?

On Napoli's weaknesses and whether Liverpool will consider playing for a draw... However, Liverpool will need to pay special attention to Insigne at the San Paolo and Mertens is another player the visitors can not ignore on Wednesday, if Ancelotti opts to start him that is.

"The test will be very hard, we will not have much time to think about what to do on the pitch, but we have a lot of confidence for tomorrow's match and we will do it". He's had enough of scoring twos, he has to get three.

And Red fans were extremely expeditious to take to Twitter to proclaim their delight at the centre-back slotting right back in to the Liverpool back-line in what is set to be Jurgen Klopp's sternest test of the season so far.

Will the Juve loss have any impact on Wednesday's game?

For all both teams' history in European competition, they've only crossed paths twice competitively - in the Europa League group stages of 2010/11.

Farmed out to West Brom in January in a bid to refind his form and fitness, Sturridge's hamstring went again in his third game and he never scored for the Baggies as they were relegated.

The Stadio San Paolo - even when derided by Napoli's own chairman - is one of Europe's great venues and this is likely to be a much trickier test for the Reds and a better indicator of their credentials than victory over a limp Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield.
