There was nothing he could do about Merten's spot kick but the keeper can certainly lay claim to being one of the biggest factors behind Livorno's unlikely point, pulling off a number of fine stops.
Made sure there was very little room through the middle for Napoli as the hosts squeezed their attacks to the touchlines. Never given much trouble in the area.
His presence played a big part in the equaliser with his neat flick baffling Reina. Was energetic and reflected in his ability to get up and down the flank seamlessly.
Looked composed at the back and gave the Livorno team constant boosts by effortlessly bringing the ball out from the back. Was unlucky with a couple of efforts from free kicks.
Was strong on the flank for the home side. His ability to monitor the wing proved a nuisance for the visitors at both ends of the pitch.
Gave away the penalty with a petulant nudge on Pandev. However, he was fairly solid apart from that and kept a close eye on the Macedonian, ensuring he did not add to his tally against Livorno.
Capitalised on some sloppy play from the opposition midfield to lay on a number of attacks for the home side.
Solid in the midfield as Livorno more than matched their loftier opponents. Was booked for a rough challenge on Inler but his tenacity was one of his stronger attributes on the evening.
Held his own in the middle but was perhaps a little slow in reacting to Napoli's dangerous counter-attacks.
Had a glorious chance to win the game but put his effort straight at Reina. Was a constant thorn in the side of the Partenopei defence with his direct running.
The elusive forward caused the Napoli backline constant problems with his neat footwork. Unfortunately his finishing let him down in advanced positions.
Has a habit of dropping clangers and provided another one tonight when he pushed Mbaye's flick into his own net. Provided some smart stops apart from that, but his performance will be remembered for only one thing.
Solid in the air at both ends. Livorno almost gave up sending aerial deliveries into the box as he sent every cross straight back out again.
Struggled when Livorno had the ball on the ground. Was booked for a rash tackled after a player in red had got the better of him one time too many.
Had a difficult night against fellow countryman Belfodil. Didn't look to have the best of games in the full-back slot for his side.
Did not enjoy Livorno's eagerness to run the ball down the wings but still managed to get in a number of important blocks and tackles when it mattered.
Kept Napoli's midfield strong alongside Jorginho, breaking up Livorno's play well and recycling possession.
Was not his usual free-flowing attacking self. Failed to create much and could not find room to create that much needed golden opportunity.
Sat deep with Inler in order to provide a platform for the front four and certainly kept the Livorno midfield quiet.
Napoli's best performer on the night. He took his penalty well in the absence of Higuain and went close on a couple of other occasions, as well as setting up Zapata for what should have been the winner.
Won the penalty but was well marshalled by the Livorno backline otherwise. Never found enough space to cause problems and was unable to continue his impressive scoring record against them.
Wasteful in attack, the former Real Madrid man was supposed to be grabbing the goals in the absence of Higuain. Instead he snatched at his chances and any hopes of a win faded with each miss.
