Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti heaped praise on Liverpool Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah despite his slow start to the season, describing him as a "top quality footballer" as both sides prepare for their European Champions League clash on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old has scored three goals in nine games in all competitions so far this season but question marks hang over his ability to reproduce the form that saw him scores 44 goals last term.

"Mohamed Salah? I don’t know if he’s at 70 or 80 per cent, but that doesn’t change that he’s a top quality footballer and he’ll be very dangerous," Ancelotti told a news conference previewing Napoli's game against Liverpool.

Liverpool are leading Group A with three points after defeating French side PSG 3-2 in a thrilling group opener.

Napoli lie third with a single point after they were held to a goalless draw by Crvena Zvezda.
