Liverpool vs Napoli
Our Liverpool correspondent David Lynch says tonight’s game could also be crucial to Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes…
Ask any Reds supporter which they would rather win this season, and the Premier League would likely come a long way ahead of a sixth Champions League title.
Yet the two are intrinsically linked until the knockout stages at least, largely because the threat of Europa League qualification still hangs over Klopp’s men.
Unless Red Star Belgrade pull off an unexpected win over Paris Saint-Germain on the same night, Liverpool will end up in Europe’s second-tier competition if they cannot get past Napoli.
And that could have dire consequences for their hopes of clinching a first league title since 1990.
On face value at least, the Thursday-Sunday routine enforced by the Europa League has always seemed to take a bigger physical toll on players than the Champions League’s Tuesday or Wednesday fixtures.
And, whether completely true or not, Liverpool won’t wish to test the theory out having finally hit the front in a remarkably tight Premier League title race last weekend.
Even in the short term, the blow to confidence dealt by an early Champions League exit would be the worst possible preparation for Sunday’s crucial home meeting with a Manchester United side who would love to derail their hosts’ fine start.
But it is the thought that the three points available against Jose Mourinho’s men could be devalued that makes Tuesday’s fixture even bigger than it might usually be.

Napoli forward Dries Mertens is likely to face the wrath of Liverpool fans tonight, after mocking the club’s famous ‘This is Anfield’ sign.
The Belgian will be part of the Napoli side that takes on Liverpool tonight, with qualification for the Champions League knockout stage on the line.
The iconic sign hangs above the exit of the tunnel at Anfield, with many Reds players choosing to touch it on their way onto the pitch as part of a long-standing superstition.
Mertens first visited Anfield in a Europa League tie while playing for Utrecht eight years ago, and says he barely noticed the sign because it was so small.
“My strongest memory is that they have a sign saying ‘This is Anfield’ and everyone was talking about it,” Mertens told The Times. “I came through the tunnel and I asked, ‘Where is the thing?’
“They said you missed it and I hadn’t noticed it.
“So in the second half, I’m looking at this small thing and asking, ‘Is this so special?'”
