Liverpool host Ajax in the Champions League looking to secure their last-16 spot.

The Reds are top of Group D and a point guarantees them a top-two finish, but they’ll be aiming for a win to boost their chances of finishing first.

At the weekend it was a case of more frustration from VAR and injuries for Jurgen Klopp’s side in a 1-1 draw with Brighton.
