Klopp fires rallying call ahead of Napoli test

Jurgen Klopp has called on Liverpool to show their true class when they take on Napoli on Tuesday night.

Liverpool now sit pretty at the top of the Premier League following their win over Bournemouth on Saturday, coupled with Manchester City's loss against Chelsea, but the attention now turns to the Champions League.

The Reds must beat Napoli at Anfield to stand any chance of reaching the last 16, with Klopp calling on his players to prove how good they actually are.

"We were not good at Napoli so first of all we would like to show we are better than that," said Klopp. "So we also have to call again on Anfield, and they should help us because that's a massive game, a really massive game.

"'Last year we did nearly everything to get qualified for that tournament again, because we had the final in the background but we also knew we had to do the job in the league.

"So now we have the chance with a specific result still to go through when this Champions League campaign so far was not really ours.

"In the home games so far we weren't quite so impressive. They know as well it will be tough, but they are strong and we need to be very strong.

"We have to be on our toes on Tuesday night. It's a big one, our people know that and I know they are already warming up.

"I believe people get what they deserve. So if we are good enough we will get the result we need and go through. And if not we'll congratulate Napoli and Paris, that's how it is."
