Liverpool lost 1-0 at the death away to Napoli on Wednesday in the Champions League, and it was a night where the Reds’ performance was widely criticised.

Napoli 1-0 Liverpool

Champions League Group Stage, Stadio San Paolo
October 3, 2018

Goal: Insigne 89′

The Reds faced Carlo Ancelotti’s side at Stadio San Paolo, looking to follow up their opening Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain.

It was a dour contest in Naples, however, with chances few and far between for Liverpool and the hosts the better team throughout.

Lorenzo Insigne struck in the final minute of normal time to break Red hearts, blowing Group C wide open in the process.

Here’s how Liverpool supporters reacted to the game on Twitter, Facebook and our forums.


Naby Keita left the pitch on a stretcher early on, with many concerned…

“Sad to see.”

Redopium on the forums.


Joe Gomez received plenty of plaudits around half-time…

“Gomez having an excellent game so far.”

Caradoc on the forums.


It was a fairly below-par first-half performance…

“I know we have to be cautious when we are away in Europe, but that was pathetic and TAA that was the worst I’ve seen you play in a very long time.”

Jason Rowlands on Facebook.

“Bag of porridge that half. Shocking pitch hasn’t helped. They’re playing rough house. Couple of yellows missed by the ref. TAA having a poor one.”

RJK on the forums.


The display was criticised at the final whistle…

“Napoli shut us down very well. That is one of the worst performances from a Liverpool team I have seen for a couple of years. No imagination whatsoever. Poor.”

Darran Liam Wade on Facebook.

“I haven’t seen us playing so bad from many games… No words! It was a match to forget at the minute it finished. COMPLETE disaster!”

Lidoris on the forums.


Mohamed Salah had another poor night and it didn’t go unnoticed…

“Think Salah needs a break very poor performance from him again.”

Mark Lee Dingley on Facebook.

“Salah gets a 1/10 mark from me.”

Hope in your heart on the forums.
