“Many things have changed over the last year,” Giuntoli told Sky Sport Italia, referring to last season’s 1-0 win here over the eventual trophy winners.

“We have increased our confidence and are facing Liverpool on an even playing field now. Carlo Ancelotti wanted to give the team that kind of courage by fielding a very attack-minded team, as that sends a strong signal.

“We want to win playing our football, not trying to neutralise the opposition and their characteristics.”

Napoli brought in Eljif Elmas, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Hirving Lozano and Fernando Llorente this summer.

“It was important to strengthen the squad with very talented players. We were lacking an understudy to Arkadiusz Milik, so now we are complete in every area.

“If it’s the best team of the Aurelio De Laurentiis era, that we’ll have to wait and see.”
