Liverpool v Ajax team news

Liverpool: James Milner has been ruled out after limping off in the draw with Brighton on Saturday.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and of course, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are all sidelined.

The fitness of summer signing Thiago remains shrouded in mystery but the return of skipper Jordan Henderson will come as a massive boost to Klopp's depleted side. Joel Matip is also likely to reprise his role at the heart of the backline.

Ajax: In contrast to their ailing hosts, Ajax can boast a near-fully fit squad for their trip to Merseyside.

Mohamed Kudus will be the only absentee with Eric ten Haag expected to name an electric line-up including the likes of Dusan Tadic and David Neres.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Ajax

This really is a crunch match for both sides.

Klopp will be desperate to have Liverpool's round-of-16 place signed, sealed and delivered as soon as possible while an away day win for Ajax could put them on the brink of qualification.

However, it is difficult to see Liverpool producing a performance as poor as last week and, despite their plethora of injury concerns, the Reds should have enough to get by in what promises to be a tough clash.

Our prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Ajax
