Liverpool vs Ajax LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Champions League fixture tonight

The Reds lead Group D with nine points from four games, having surprisingly suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Atalanta last time out in the tournament. Ajax are second in the group on seven points and lost 1-0 to Liverpool in October in the reverse fixture of this evening’s meeting.

A win or draw here would guarantee Klopp’s players a place in the last 16, the round in which they were eliminated by Atletico Madrid last season – a year after they lifted the trophy. Follow live updates from the Champions League game below.
