Liverpool will host Napoli at Anfield on Tuesday knowing that they must win in order to be able to qualify for the next round of the Champions League.
The Reds need to win either 1-0 or by two clear goals to have any chance of making the knockout stages, otherwise, the prospect of playing in the Europa League faces them.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have been rather inconsistent in the competition so far this season, however, according to a match preview by Sky Sports, he will have some of his stars available for the game to give his team a timely boost.
Sadio Mane is one of those thought to be available for the game against Napoli after he had been used as a substitute in their match with Bournemouth following a cut on his foot that had left him a doubt.
Dejan Lovren could make a return to the defence after making his return to training after missing the last three matches with a concussion, whilst Jordan Henderson is also available for Klopp’s side.
Liverpool will need to be at their very best to have any chance of qualifying for the next stage of the Champions League, and having the likes of Sadio Mane available will be a huge boost.
The £63million-rated star, as per Transfermarkt, is key to the way that the Anfield outfit plays their football and has a huge influence on how the game can play out.
Lovren’s return could also be timely as he will likely replace Matip and could bring some experience to the side to try and help ensure they get the three points necessary, as well as trying to keep a clean sheet in the process.
