Sitting second in Group A, Jurgen Klopp’s side have nine points from four matches. After losing their opener against Napoli, they have won three on the bounce.
Liverpool will be eager to bounce back quickly from the weekend disappointment when they travel to Ajax in the Champions League. The Reds are in the driving seat in their group, however, they face a tricky challenge in the Netherlands on Wednesday night. Ajax are the table toppers in the Dutch league but have struggled to replicate the same form in the Champions League. Even though on paper, Liverpool would be the favourites in this clash, their form of late is not inspiring, hence Ajax will be quietly confident about their chances at home.
