Liverpool have beaten Napoli 1-0 in their final group stage game in the Champions League and have secured a place in the round of 16.

After a stunning hattrick to put Liverpool on the top of the Premier League table, Salah produced another exquisite performance to assure their journey in Europe’s most prestigious competition continues, scoring the winner against the Partenopei.

“It was always going to be a tough game – they’re a good team. I thought it was a really good performance, we knew we had to defend well and we defended really well from front to back,” Milner told BT Sport.

“Mo’s goal too… he’s a matchwinner, a world -class player and he’s done it for us again.”
