UEFA Champions League holders Liverpool began the defence of their crown with a humbling 2-0 defeat away to Napoli on Tuesday.

Two goals inside the final 10 minutes of the game gave the Italians a victory and a slight revenge against the 'Reds' who knocked them out of last season's group stage on route to winning the trophy.

Dries Mertens netted from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute after Andrew Robertson was alleged to have felled Jose Callejon, before a stoppage time second for substitute Fernando Llorente.

The defeat leaves Jurgen Klopp's side third in the table behind early pace setters Salzburg who beat Genk 6-2 to top Group E.
