Everton scout Carlo Jacomuzzi says European champions Liverpool “leave a lot to be desired in defence”.
Liverpool face Napoli to start their Champions League title defence on Tuesday, with Jacomuzzi suggesting the Italians can “achieve an important result” at the San Paolo.
He feels that Liverpool’s defence is a potential weak point, even though no team has conceded fewer Premier League goals this season, nor last campaign.
“Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe, but they are certainly not unbeatable,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“The Reds leave a lot to be desired in defence. They have a team devoted to attacking. Home or away, there isn’t much difference because they always go for victory and try to make a game of it.
“Napoli will have to be very careful and mature and not take any unnecessary risks because Liverpool are very impressive on the counter.
“I am convinced that, unlike last year, Liverpool will pay more attention to what happened in the Champions League match between these two last year.
“I’m also convinced that Carlo Ancelotti will be able to adopt the best moves to achieve an important result against Jurgen Klopp.”
