    • Premier League table toppers, Liverpool, are at the risk of crashing out of the UEFA Champions League.

To stand any chance of survival, the Reds need to get a win over Napoli at Anfield tonight and hope other results go their way.

Interestingly, the Reds could still finish in any position from first to the bottom of Group C.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s men know that only a win will do against Napoli if they are to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.

Group C was nicknamed the Group of death the moment Liverpool, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain were all drawn in the same group against each other, and so it has proved.

For tonight, the likes of Mohamed Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mane all have to be at their very best to overpower Carlo Ancelotti’s men at Anfield.
