Belgian forward, Dries Mertens’ penalty and a late goal by Fernando Llorente saw Liverpool fall to a 0-2 defeat in their Group E Champions League opener against Napoli.

Former Tottenham forward, Llorente made it two(2) for the Italian side after Mertens scored from the penalty spot following a clumsy tackle by Liverpool defender Andy Robertson on Jose Callejon.

The result means Napoli take second place behind Red Bull Salzburg, who whitewashed Belgian side Genk by 6-2 on the night.

Meanwhile at the Stamford Bridge, host, Chelsea were pinned 0-1 by Valencia in their Group H first encounter.

Rodrigo’s superb conversion of Daniel Parejo’s free-kick in the 74th minute broke the deadlock.

Ross Barkley missed a late penalty which was a chance to bring both teams to parity.

Chelsea will welcome Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in the English Premier League at 3:30 pm.
