  • Fans let off flares before Liverpool's match against Manchester City earlier this year

Naby Keita was taken to hospital as a precaution after injuring his back during Liverpool's 1-0 defeat at Napoli on Wednesday, according to the club.

Lorenzo Insigne scored after 90 minutes in a game Napoli dominated from the start with substitute Dries Mertens also rattling the crossbar.

There was no time for Liverpool to respond as their winless run extended to three games - having won their opening seven matches across all competitions - while Napoli register their first ever win over the five-time champions of Europe at the third attempt.

"Yes, it is a tough game [v City]", Klopp said.

"The midfielders or the fullbacks tried to go forward, but we lost the ball and had to go back in the other direction". No shot on target is not enough. We didn't play well and they deserved to win. A big part of that performance was my fault for sure but I need at least one night to watch it again and see what was the fault but it was not like it should have looked. "Normally if you are not good enough you lose football games".

'We had the chances to score earlier, but I think we timed the goal well.

"Things like this happen but not as often as they did tonight and it costs energy". Then when you have the ball you have to play much calmer. You have to stay calm in a situation like that, but we were too hectic with the ball.

"The first half was kind of OK, but the second half was not good enough". A 0-0 away from home is OK, but we made a tactical mistake before their goal.

Liverpool were also handicapped by an injury to Guinean midfielder Naby Keita inside the first 20 minutes. I don't know exactly. "We have to wait".

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted to see his tactics come off in victory over Champions League opponents Liverpool. We had an extra central defender and were able to build the game from the back. Overall it was a very good approach from the team, there was a ideal balance to avoid the attack and managed their strong strikers up front.

"We don't have a lot of set-pieces".
