We are so happy for getting the three points.”I’m really happy to score and to help my team. I have to continue like this, scoring, but the team was really good.

The most important thing is the three points because it had been a long period without that.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say

Performance-wise, the more I think about it, it was not a game we would usually lose,” the Liverpool boss said.“It was a difficult game against Napoli. People expect us to dominate a game like this more, but that is actually not possible. The quality of Napoli is too big for that.”I was happy with a lot of parts of the game. Of course, not with our creating chances and finishing. But, again, they’re a very good side. “It’s not a team you play against and score easily two, three or four goals. We could have had a few better chances with a few better decisions. We are in a good shape and we have to keep going.”

TAMPA, FL – JANUARY 09: A general view during the national anthem prior to the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers at Raymond James Stadium on January 9, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Tim Bradbury/Getty Images)Death, taxes, and Alabama making a run for the national championship. It’s safe to say that those are the few guarantees in life.This year is no different, as the Crimson Tide are steamrolling the competition. In fact, Nick Saban’s team is so dominant that quarterback Tua Tagovailoa hasn’t taken a snap in any fourth quarter this season.If there is one program that has success against Alabama recently, then it would have to be Clemson. Dismissing the Crimson Tide’s greatest adversary would be foolish, especially since another championship battle could be looming.At least that is what ESPN’s David M. Hale believes will happen.From ESPN.com:So let’s start there: Clemson-Bama IV seems like a near inevitability, with Ohio State adding to that certainty with its loss to Purdue. But what Saturday showed us — and what all of 2018 has shown, really — is that if we do get yet another sequel, this one won’t be at all like the first three.Look at Alabama, after all. Less than 10 minutes into Saturday’s game against Tennessee, a team coming off a signature win over Auburn, with a coach who knows Nick Saban’s system as intimately as anyone, the Tide led 28-0 and the only question was how embarrassing it would get.Then look at Clemson. Saturday’s game against NC State was supposed to be the last true challenge for the Tigers, an undefeated opponent who’d taken them to the wire in each of the past two seasons. And by the half, Clemson was up 24-0, its freshman quarterback looking every bit a burgeoning star.Any doubts about the Tigers were erased over the weekend, as Clemson won 41-7 over then-undefeated NC State.With Trevor Lawrence and Tagovailoa playing excellent football, a rematch between previous champions would be electric.Do you think Clemson and Alabama are bound to meet again this season?
