Latest Liverpool news: Napoli hand Liverpool 3-0 loss in Edinburgh
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.
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.
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 and Trent Alexander-Arnold were the full-backs and our midfield trio consisted of James Milner, Fabinho and 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.
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.
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.
The players need to gain their fitness ahead of a big clash on Sunday – the Community Shield final against Manchester City.
