group-stage game on Tuesday. Napoli won the group and Liverpool qualified as the second team.

Liverpool has lost their last two Premier League matches but Klopp believes the win over the Serie A leaders has shown their real quality.

"We don't doubt the quality, I don't think anybody doubts the quality,

" he said.

"But that's part of the problem as well – we don't show consistency.

"That's why we have to [take] a proper step back, and tonight we did that.

"We are Liverpool, a top team. Nobody forgot what we did last year, the boys didn't forget that, but it's now not important really. I know people might get sick of it when I say it, but we really have to fight through.

"We showed everything. We showed pieces of good football, and the defensive stuff was on a high level."

Napoli beat Liverpool in the first Champions League group-stage game with four goals but Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez scored two late goals for Klopp's side at Anfield.

Klopp added:

"Napoli [are] a real force, really, and it could have been extremely difficult for us tonight, but the boys played a good game and that's why it was not.

"Tonight we will take the right conclusions of this game, even when the next one will be a completely different game for different reasons. We will take the good stuff out of this game and then start the next fight against Tottenham."
