Liverpool star admits the club received a reality check against Napoli


He pinpointed where the Reds must improve

Liverpool begun the new campaign excellently, won their first 6 Premier League fixtures in a row and lost their first points of the Campaign against Chelsea last weekend as the match ended in 1-1 draw.

Though they suffered a setback last week as they were defeated by the Blues in the Carabao Cup, with late strikes from Eden Hazard and Emerson after Daniel Sturridge opened the scoring

The Reds started their Champions League campaign strongly too after defeating Paris Saint-Germain 3-2. But they were handed a surprise defeat by Napoli on Wednesday as they lost the match 1-o.

The Anfield Outfit were deservedly beaten by Lorenzo Insigne’s 90th-minute goal for Carlo Ancelotti’s side having produced an error-strewn and passive display at Stadio San Paolo.

Georgiono Wijnaldum admitted that they received a reality check against Napoli and and pinpointed where the Premier League giants must improve ahead of the Premier League clash against Manchester City.

“You’re always disappointed when you lose a game,” he said as quoted by Liverpool Echo. “We didn’t play well and they deserved to win.

“They were calmer than us on the ball, they defended well and stopped us creating chances. It was not a good day for us. They deserved to win.

“It’s a good game to learn from. That’s what we’re going to do – we’re going to analyse the game and see what we can do better.

“We know what we can bring, we still have confidence. But this was a reality check on how things must not go. It’s a good lesson for us to get better. We have to take it as a lesson and then we have to carry on.”

“We wanted to rush things and play football, instead of keeping the ball and waiting for the moments,” the midfielder added.

“They did well; they were calm and played the ball around and waited for the moments. That’s why they were so good.

“We have done it better this season, so we can do it – but we have to do it every game. That’s why we’re all so disappointed, because we expect more and to bring more. It didn’t happen but we still have four games to go.”
