Jurgen Klopp called on Liverpool's fans to produce an electric atmosphere when his side hosts Napoli in a must-win Champions League clash on Tuesday.

Last season's runner-up, Liverpool is facing elimination in Group C, needing a win over the Serie A outfit to have any chance of progressing.

Liverpool is in some form, sitting top of the Premier League after claiming three successive wins since away defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

Klopp is eager to see the club's fans lift his side, which suffered a 1-0 loss to Napoli when the teams met in October.

"We were not good in Napoli so the first thing we want to do is show that we are better than how we played there," he said, via Liverpool Echo.

"Again, we are going to ask for Anfield and call on the fans to help us – it is a really massive game.

"It would be really cool if the crowd was on its feet, it's a big one and our people know that. I know they will already be warming up.

"We know how big the atmosphere can be and hopefully we see that. We did everything we could to qualify for this tournament again and we know we have a chance to go through with specific results even though this Champions League campaign so far was not really ours."

If PSG beats Red Star Belgrade, Liverpool needs a 1-0 win – or a victory by two or more goals – against Napoli to progress.
