Latest Liverpool news: Napoli hand Liverpool 3-0 loss in Edinburgh

Liverpool were dealt another defeat in pre-season, with Serie A giants Napoli running out 3-0 winners.

The Reds were coming off a rough US tour without any wins in their last three games, and Napoli looked sharper than us in the final third.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Lorenzo Insigne scored in the 17th minute before Arkadiusz Milik made it 2-0 in the 28th.

The third goal was scored by Amin Younes in the 52nd minute, and the only positives that can be taken from the game are the performances of the youngsters.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool started with a very strong team in the first-half, with Virgil van Dijk partnering Joel Matip in the heart of the defence.

Andy Robertson

Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold were the full-backs and our midfield trio consisted of James Milner, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson.

Jordan Henderson

The attack was a little light, with Divock Origi supported by Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out wide.

Changes aplenty for the Reds

As with any pre-season game, there were wholesale changes later on in the clash.

James Milner

Sepp van den Berg got more minutes under his belt and so did new signing Harvey Elliott.

The winger signed for the Reds hours before making an appearance against Napoli, and was one of our better players.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Adam Lewis, Rhian Brewster, Adam Lallana, Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren also picked up some minutes in the loss.

The Reds head off to Evian for another training camp and face Lyon in midweek.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The players need to gain their fitness ahead of a big clash on Sunday – the Community Shield final against Manchester City.

Liverpool haven’t looked sharp throughout pre-season and hopefully, that changes before the game against the Cityzens.
