Atalanta pulling off an unlikely win at Anfield has definitely caused a few worry lines to appear on Liverpool faces and as such, this UEFA Champions League Group D encounter between them and Ajax has gained a lot more importance. Ajax are currently second in the group but can go top with a win.

If Jurgen Klopp’s men can take three points against Ajax, they will qualify for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 for the fourth year in a row. Only three points separate the top three teams in Group D and Atalanta are in with a shout as well. The result of this game could prove vital to them.

An injury-ravaged Liverpool side will have to dig deep against a charged-up Ajax side who are currently on an eight-match unbeaten run and have scored a whopping 38 goals in the process. They have been firing on all cylinders and that’s why Jurgen Klopp might be a little concerned ahead of the fixture.
