Live – Ajax vs Liverpool – Live stream (Full HD)
Anfield will host its first Champions League match of the season this evening when Liverpool takes on Ajax, with Thiago and Diogo Jota both starting.
With Sunday’s scheduled Premier League meeting against Chelsea postponed and an international break on the horizon, this will be the Reds’ final match of September.
Following a rocky start to the season, Jurgen Klopp will be anxious to ensure his side enters the international break in good spirits, with a positive result essential here to kickstart Liverpool’s Champions League campaign.
Alisson keeps his starting spot and will be hoping he isn’t as busy tonight as he was last week at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
There are two defense modifications. Trent Alexander-Arnold starts at right back, with Joel Matip replacing Virgil van Dijk and Kostas Tsimikas at left back.
Along with Harvey Elliott and the returning Thiago, Fabinho will anchor the midfield.
Mohamed Salah leads Liverpool’s attack from the right flank, with Luis Diaz on the opposite flank and Diogo Jota in the centre.
Despite having the possibility to choose 12, Klopp has elected to name 10 substitutes, with Fabio Carvalho returning to the squad after missing the trip to Napoli due to injury.
