Andy Robertson included in Liverpool squad for Napoli, despite missing training

Liverpool have named the club's travelling squad to take on Napoli, with Andy Robertson included.

Napoli vs Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp's men fly out to Italy this evening, ahead of getting their Champions League campaign underway with a meeting versus Serie A giants Napoli tomorrow night.

The Reds are no doubt set to head into proceedings brimming with confidence, having extended their lead atop the Premier League table over the weekend.

Before champions Manchester City fell to a shock 3-2 defeat at the hands of Norwich on Saturday evening, Liverpool got the job done once more, at home to Newcastle.

A 3-1 win, courtesy of Sadio Mane (2) and Mohamed Salah, saw the Merseyside giants make it 5 wins from 5 to start out the new league season.

Napoli, meanwhile, picked up a victory of their own on Saturday, putting Sampdoria to the sword by 2 goals to nil.

Robertson included

An otherwise positive weekend's work for Liverpool, however, was dampened somewhat this morning, by news that key defender Andy Robertson was absent from the club's latest training session:

As such, fears immediately spread that the Scottish international was in doubt to feature at the Stadio San Paolo.

Liverpool's fans, though, have since seen their concerns eased, following confirmation that Robertson has been included in Jurgen Klopp's travelling party.

Liverpool squad to take on Napoli: Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Milner, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Gomez, Adrian, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Lonergan, Shaqiri, Brewster, Robertson, Matip, Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold.
