Two Reds players destroyed after huge loss to Napoli


Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler both accused the same Liverpool players of wrongdoing during their punditry analysis

The Champions League humiliating defeat to Liverpool by Napoli was the worst possible start to Jurgen Klopp's European football season after his team lost 4-1.

James Milner committed a handball in the fifth minute and Napoli capitalised from the spot with Piotr Zielinski sending Alisson Becker the wrong way. Van Dijk tripped Victor Osimhen, who joined Zielinksi on the penalty list. However, Osimhen's shot was stopped by Alisson this time around.

Zambo Anguissa and substitute Giovanni Simeone made it 3-0 for  the  Serie A side before half-time. 

Fowler criticized Alexander-Arnold's lack of motivation and pointed out Gomez for his mistakes that led to Napoli scoring the third goal.

Fowler said: "You could not question [Liverpool's desire] over the past couple of years, but today we are. We said it was a tough game for Liverpool, we know how good Napoli are at home.

"First five minutes you need one of your defenders to say 'let's not concede, let's make sure we stay tight'. I know Gomez will get all the stick because he is caught out for the first goal, but watch the desire from Trent.

"As much as you give him loads of plaudits for the way he attacks teams and his desire to get forward, but his desire to help his team out defensively, is poor. To be fair, Napoli have been brilliant but Liverpool defensively have been absolutely shocking."
