Milan Jovanovic, Ryan Babel and David N’Gog were Liverpool’s attacking trident last time they visited Naples.
Do not adjust your screens.
So it is testament to Jurgen Klopp and his pearly whites that Liverpool can now approach this Champions League campaign as one of the favourites.
In fact, the majority of that first XI that played in the 0-0 in October 2010 is enough to make your stomach turn.
With Roy Hodgson at the helm the trusty Pepe Reina was between the sticks, although even the Spaniard was on the wane by that time.
Jamie Carragher captained the side but was also in his twilight years and was partnered at centre-back by own goal merchant Martin Skrtel.
Looking left and right wouldn’t have filled the two veterans with much hope.
Fulham hero Paul Konchesky and Martin Kelly were running the flanks for the Liverpool back line.
But midfield is where the fun really starts.
The trio of Jay Spearing, Christian Poulsen and Jonjo Shelvey were trusted by Roy Hodgson to run the middle of the park. They did manage 49% of possession.
Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are still doing their best to escape the shadow cast by this front three.
Jovanovic, Babel and N’Gog were tasked with getting the goals, of which of course none came during the 90 minutes in Naples.
What makes this result all the more admirable was the quality they were up against.
Napoli were young, fast and hungry with Marek Hamsik, Edison Cavani and Ezequial Lavezzi all starting.
Liverpool have come on leaps and bounds since 2010, once again a European power-house reaching the final last year.
