The Egyptian’s contribution was vital, as it sent the Reds into the knockout stage at the expense of the Partenopei. Of course, Liverpool would go on to win the competition after a 2-0 victory in the final against Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool endured a tough spell on their United States tour, facing three difficult opponents.
While the focus is understandably on building fitness in these meetings, the team was often faced with physical challenges of a different sort. Against Sevilla in particular, there were a number of robust tackles thrown in.
After that draining encounter, Liverpool looked a little jaded in their 2-2 draw against Sporting.
The Liverpool.com Twitter account was unhappy with some of the treatment the Reds received in their games:

Against the Lisbon club, Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi were on the scoresheet for Liverpool. However, while there was some bright play in an attacking sense, Klopp’s side were unable to handle Bruno Fernandes, who opened the scoring on the day, and were caught napping when Wendel made the score 2-2 in the second half.
After what would have been a gruelling trip, Klopp will start to think about the new season in earnest in the coming days, starting with the match against Napoli.
As Liverpool journalist Jack Sear relayed, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita are back in training, with some other key men returning shortly:

Klopp on Oxlade-Chamberlain: “Ox was really involved in the game, he was really good and then he felt that and he could not really be part of the game anymore. Apart from that, really important. So far, he could make pretty much all sessions, which is unbelievably important.”
Klopp also revealed that Keita and Shaqiri should be ready to start training with the team when Alisson, Salah and Firmino return next Monday. Lyon friendly was organised so that they can play a part.

Liverpool will go toe-to-toe with Napoli on Sunday at Murrayfield as the Reds reach the final stages of their pre-season preparations.
With the start of the new Premier League season drawing closer, Liverpool will be hoping to reach a high level of fitness and intensity, and a dominant performance against Carlo Ancelotti’s men will stand them in good stead ahead of their season opener against Norwich.

Napoli, of course, will be hoping for the same, although they are in an earlier stage of their pre-season, with three additional friendlies to play, including the inaugural two-legged La Liga-Serie A Cup between themselves and Barcelona.

Liverpool continue to be without several players who represented their countries at international tournaments this summer.
Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker are expected to return next week in time for Liverpool’s summer camp in Evian, while Sadio Mane isn’t due back until after the Community Shield final against Manchester City, having reached the Africa Cup of Nations final with Senegal.
Nathaniel Clyne, meanwhile, has joined Naby Keita on the sidelines, having suffered a cruciate ligament rupture, ensuring the right back will be out for the majority of the season.
Napoli are currently missing Allan, Adam Ounas, David Ospina and Kalidou Koulibaly, who are on extended breaks having played in summer tournaments.
Liverpool Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Origi, Wijnaldum.
Napoli Meret; Hysaj, Manolas, Chiriches, Ghoulam; Callejon, Gaetano, Zielinski, Insigne; Milik, Mertens.
Head to Head Record
This includes two encounters in last season’s Champions League, with both teams winning 1-0 in their home games, indicating a fairly even battle. They also contested a friendly last year, which Liverpool dominated in a 5-0 victory.
Both sides have enjoyed a mixed pre-season thus far. After swiping aside lower division English teams in their first two friendlies, Liverpool went winless in their three games against sterner opposition in the United States.
