Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti 'surprised' by UEFA choice for referee vs. Liverpool

Liverpool were comfortable winners two months ago

Sturridge returned to Liverpool in the summer following an injury-ravaged spell on loan at West Bromwich Albion in the second half of last season, and is now the club's joint-top goal scorer so far this season after Saturday's spectacular equaliser at Chelsea.

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti has been heaping praise on Liverpool ahead of his side's Champions League clash with the Reds on Wednesday evening.

"Liverpool have improved a lot, they managed to reach the final previous year and they started the season very well".

"Liverpool don't just have one good player - they've got several, especially when it comes to playing on the break".

"I've admired him since his days at Dortmund".

Carragher said: "He's scored three goals which is not a million miles away from what it was last season and it's not a bad start".

Three things we learned from Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool
Liverpool are now occupying second position on the Premier League standings with 19 points after seven games played this season. Hazard's sixth goal of the season had looked like giving Chelsea all three points before Sturridge's late intervention.

Sturridge also played his part in getting his side's Champions League campaign off on the right foot with the opening goal during a thrilling 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain two weeks ago. "And as we say in Germany, he's obviously a smart fox", said Klopp. Saying all these nice things about me, but it is tactics already.

"I think a little bit too much has probably been made of Salah's form", said Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports on Monday Night. He's a fantastic guy, he was a world-class player and he's a world-class manager.

"It will take them a while to get close to Liverpool and Manchester City". "That's how it is, timing in life is pretty important", added Klopp.

The Hungarian referee showed Arturo Vidal a controversial red card and then allowed two Real goals to stand despite replays showing both were offside.

'How can I say, it was not my best performance personally. I understand why I was not happy but the reaction was too much - I watched two games from the stands, one against Arsenal at home and I don't know the other one.

"It was not nice sitting in the stand, getting all the comments, so I chose to watch the second half of the match from the groundsman's room - with a big picture of Diego Maradona on the wall".
