Liverpool vs Ajax live stream: How to watch Champions League game and team news

Liverpool host Ajax at Anfield as they look to kick start their Champions League campaign following an opening day disappointment in Italy.

The Reds flattered to deceive on the continent last week as they succumbed to a devastating 4-1 defeat against Napoli.

And following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, Jurgen Klopp’s side weren’t handed an opportunity to redeem themselves after their weekend fixture with Wolves was postponed.

Ajax on the other hand come into this contest brimming with confidence.

Last time out in the Champions League, they beat Rangers 4-0, and proceeded to register a 5-0 victory over Heerenveen in the Eredivisie on Saturday.

Here’s everything you need to know about Liverpool Vs Ajax.

Liverpool team news

Liverpool fans will hope to see Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota, and Joel Matip return to the starting XI following their respective injury returns last week.

The Reds midfield remains depleted though, with Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Curtis Jones still side-lined.

Also absent are Ibrahima Konate, Calvin Ramsay, and Caoimhin Kelleher who continue to nurse injury problems.

Ajax team news

Despite seeing a few key players pull up with injuries in recent matches, Ajax come into this one with a strong squad available to them.

Steven Bergwign was withdrawn before the final whistle blew against Rangers last week, but he returned to action against Heerenveen on Saturday.

Meanwhile, former Rangers centre-back Calvin Bassey sustained an injury to his foot at the weekend, but he’s believed to be in contention to start tonight.
