This is why you need a true GK. Just one moment - and we'd be out.
Ooh Mane Mane :shocked:

We made it! Wonderful game and we deserved more - something like 3-0, but Mane was too...hmm.. generous and kind to Napoli :-)
All players deserves credit and ONLY good words! We were solid, we were powerful!
The Anfiedl deserves that kind of positive emotion and I'm more than happy for all these fans at the stadium tonight!
This is the Liverpool way - with lot of drama and emotions!
This is the perfect start of the preparation for the real big game with MAN U :celebrating:

What a seriously shocking referee. How do we end up with these blerts? You can see why we've lost our last 4 games with him in charge.

Well, into the knock outs thanks to Mo and Alisson. Good performance by the rest but some frankly shocking finishing. Considering what was at stake, the atmos was poor as well.

Onto Sunday and the mancs. Trent didnt look very happy after the final whistle. I hope he's not a doubt now for the game.

Allison has to be MOM . Without him it would have been Thursday nights in the Europa.
Shocking up front. Lovren was fuc**ng clueless when they had that chance at the death. Should have been at least four up second half.
Thought the back five were brilliant.
Still shaking.

OK, so now I'm a believer. Napoli decent first half but poorer second and didn't finish their half chances. Robbo fast becoming a god. Virgil was before he joined us. Gini back to some form maybe.

Motm Mr Rameses. Get in son.

Next? New arseholes for Utd please.

Allison MotM: we needed a clean sheet and he made sure we had it. Not just from the late save but throughout. It's the things that don't really end up on screen: the organisation at set pieces, the passes out from the back but despite many good performances he was the difference. In the greater scheme of things, bargain of the year.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner, speaking to BT Sport:
"It was always going to be a tough game - they're a good team.

"I thought it was a really good performance, we knew we had to defend well and we defended really well from front to back.

"Mo's goal too... he's a matchwinner, a world -class player and he's done it for us again."

Never do it the easy way do we? Mad game. Sensational Salah goal. Lucky with Virgil not getting a red. Missing some glorious clear cut chances. The Alisson wonder save at the end. Fully deserved the win. Feel a bit for Napoli, would argue they’ve looked the best side in the group and was hoping PSG would monumentally fuck up but oh well. So relieved we don’t have to suffer through the Europa League.

Let’s have Real in the next round now.

I'd be mighily pissed at Mane if Allison hadn't pulled off that miracle.

Drop Mane for the next game, Get in Shaq. It's the scums and they need to be taken to the cleaners.

Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson:
"We knew we had to get a fast start and that's what we did.

"At 0-0 they had nothing to lose and they threw up their centre-back. It was an unbelievable save from Alisson.

"But to get 1-0 up we were confident we would keep a clean sheet and thankfully that's what we did."
