The result extended Liverpool's winless run to three matches, with the Premier League club failing to record a shot on target in a Champions League game for the first time since February 2006.

"No attempts on target, I don't remember when that happened last time", Klopp told a news conference.

"The midfielders or the full-backs tried to go forward, but we lost the ball and had to go back in the other direction".

"It gives a lot of character to the team and it's great we kept the same mentality from the start to the end".

The midfielder was complaining of severe back pain when being attended to by Liverpool's medical staff. "That's it", said Klopp. Then when you have the ball you have to play much calmer.

"Napoli made a really good game, we didn't, and that's why they deserve the three points".

"The first half was kind of OK, but the second half was not good enough".

"It's always a bad sign if you have to say your goalkeeper was your best player, but that was obvious tonight", said Klopp. "We have to take it as a lesson and then we have to carry on". If we had scored a few minutes earlier, we would have had more time suffering!'

"I have to accept that a big part of that performance was my fault for sure but I need at least one night to watch it again and see exactly what was the fault, but it was not like it should have looked".

Liverpool will now look to bounce back in their mouth-watering top-of-the-table clash with Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday, while Napoli host Sassuolo this weekend.

The Guinea worldwide, on his debut in the competition for the club he joined in the summer, lasted just 19 minutes before going to ground on the pitch and eventually being taken off on the medical cart.

"The start of the game was OK", he said. We can not change that, so we have to make sure we are ready.

"You prepare games in your head and then it's all down to interpretation. It didn't happen but we still have four games to go".
