Liverpool vs Ajax LIVE: Latest Champions League results and updates as Mohammed Kudus responds after Mohamed Salah’s goal and tribute to the Queen

Liverpool fans don’t need lessons in respecting Queen tributes, says Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool go into their second Champions League game of the season in poor form, having won just two of their seven competitive games this season. Last time out they were swept aside 4-1 in Napoli, a performance Jurgen Klopp failed to impress.

After that defeat, Klopp suggested the Reds needed to reinvent themselves, but they were unable to play as the Premier League could play last weekend’s games as a mark of respect after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Players like Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara However, boost Liverpool’s chances tonight as fans expect a much improved performance after Liverpool’s terrible start to the season.

Their opponent is Erevidisie champions Ajax, who are looking to make their mark after beating Rangers 4-0 and make it a double British win. The Dutch have scored 25 goals in seven games and claimed their sixth straight home win over the weekend.

Follow all the action from Anfield as Liverpool host Ajax in the Champions League:


30′ – Liverpool 1-1 Ajax

Alexander-Arnold sends a sizzling half-volley that goes over Pasveer… and also just over the bar. Jota and Diaz still lead the press on the keeper when the visitors try to play and they’re having some fun with it nearly thereby creating a hazard. High risk but maybe high reward for Ajax.


GATE! 26′ – Liverpool 1-1 Ajax

Great balance! Blind plays a pass behind Alexander-Arnold, it cuts back to Kudus and he absolutely slams one into the near top corner off the bar! Unstoppable hit to even the scores.


24′ Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

Diogo Jota flashes in another shot that beat Pasveer well – but again it just goes wide. The Reds suddenly look a lot more confident and aggressive off the ball. Alisson sends a 70-yard pass to Jota on the left and he crosses deep to Salah – again just missing. A second goal feels close.


20′ Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

Berghuis hits the bar when he should have but he’s about three meters offside anyway.

Thiago then shows what the Reds were missing with two great moments of control to dodge tackles and win a free kick.

The first delivery is half cleared, but when Van Dijk flips it back to center it falls on Diaz and he whips in a half volley – just about an inch wide.


GATE! 16′ Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

This time it works for the couple! Diaz does well to win an aerial ball, Jota makes a big angle to free Salah in the box and it’s a touch to control it, a touch to finish inside the near post.

Liverpool in front and Klopp and the Kop celebrate as relieved as everything else.


15′ Liverpool 0-0 Ajax

Alexander-Arnold hisses a cross but she’s ahead of Jota and Salah and Pasveer collects. Jota then almost snaps through for Salah and she denies a handball – and the offside flag is up. However, almost.


11′ Liverpool 0-0 Ajax

Jota is leading the line for Liverpool ahead of Darwin and Firmino tonight. Due to injuries and rotation, he got off to a very rocky start in the second half of last season and wasn’t in great shape. Could use a big performance tonight after his recent return from a hamstring problem. Lots of running so far but not too much involvement in build-up for the Portuguese striker. At the other end of the field, Kudus tries to sneak in, but Matip tracks him well and wins the goal kick.


7′ – Liverpool 0-0 Ajax

The visitors have a lot of faith in possession in defence, but Liverpool show their pressing game early on, forcing Bassey to make a mistake. That gets the crowd going a bit – there’s support, but not exactly wild support straight from the kick-off at Anfield. It’s pretty clear they’re waiting to see how the team recovers after a bad couple of weeks and manager Jurgen Klopp’s comments.


3′ – Liverpool 0-0 Ajax

A bright start for the hosts as Salah twice tries to get in goal and now Elliott sends in a cross from the right as well. Tsimikas eventually shoots from miles away, but it’s already a more vigorous effort than we saw from the Reds in Naples a week ago.


0′ – Liverpool 0-0 Ajax

Kicking off! We’re going to Anfield. A big response is needed from Liverpool. Liverpool vs Ajax LIVE: Latest Champions League results and updates as Mohammed Kudus responds after Mohamed Salah’s goal and tribute to the Queen
