Liverpool have won just two of their opening six Premier League games amid an injury crisis.
Liverpool FC Press Conference
The Reds go into the game on the back of a goalless draw in the Merseyside derby last Saturday.
Meanwhile, their opponents got back to winning ways last time out, winning 2-1 at Lazio.
Italy legend Fabio Cannavaro spoke to Area Napoli ahead of his former side’s meeting with Liverpool.
And he outlined Reds flankers Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz as particular dangermen against Napoli.
“The game has one clear aspect,” said Cannavaro.
“On the flanks, we must double up on Diaz and Salah, because (full-backs) Di Lorenzo and Mario Rui must not be left alone.
“So Kvara and Politano, or Lozano, know well what they have to do.”
Salah has made six Premier League appearances so far this season, registering two goals and two assists.
Meanwhile, Luis Diaz has three goals from his six top-flight outings in 2022-23.
