CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Liverpool looking to continue winning run in Champions League


Champions League holders Liverpool begin their quest to retain their title when they take on Napoli in a Group E match in Italy on Tuesday 

Juergen Klopp’s squad held a training session at their home base before travelling to Naples, boosted by a remarkable run that has seen them win their last fourteen Premier League matches sandwiched around last season’s 2-0 Champions League final win over Tottenham in Madrid.

This season, Liverpool are already five points clear at the top from defending Premier League champions Manchester City and are averaging three goals a game. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have four each, with Mane scoring twice and Salah the third in Saturday’s (September 14) 3-1 win over Newcastle.
