Keita taken to hospital in Naples following defeat

STURRIDGE EPL

An apparent back injury forced Naby Keita off in the first half, but Klopp was unable to offer any update.

The midfielder was complaining of severe back pain when being attended to by Liverpool's medical staff.

It is understood Keita was still being assessed at midnight after Liverpool had sought out specialist consultation.

Jürgen Klopp's team must pick themselves up quickly with Manchester City set to visit Anfield on Sunday - and Wijnaldum insisted they will take the lessons from their defeat in Italy.

Keita will undergo further treatment back in Liverpool and will be desperate to get back to action as soon as he is fit to do so.

The full extent of the Guinean's injury is unknown and Klopp confirmed as much after the game when he gave his post-match press conference at the Stadio Sao Paolo. "I don't know what exactly. We have to wait", he added.

"Things like this happen, but not as often as they did tonight and it costs energy", Klopp said. That's what we're going to do - we're going to analyse the game and see what we can do better. We can not change that so we have to make sure we are ready.

"If you looked how we played you would have thought they were always on us - we could have played calmer, but we didn't". "Then the timing for our defensive movements were not good enough, we didn't close the spaces in the right moment, we didn't react in the right situation and so they could play through our formation". That's happened and not more.

"We had the chances to score earlier, but I think we timed it well".

"We have three days to recover and then we will face Man City", added German Klopp.

"It would've been hard any way at any time of the season - it is always hard".

"We interpreted the game well".

It looked as though Liverpool would hold out for a valuable away point which would have kept them top of Group C, but Napoli finally struck with just 30 seconds remaining of normal time as Insigne applied a simple finish from close range after Alisson had been taken out of the game by Callejon's cross.

"Then we have the crowd at our backs". You could see tonight, Napoli used the atmosphere and we couldn't calm it down with our performance.
