How to watch Liverpool v Ajax - UK TV channel, live stream, early team news

Liverpool are back in Champions League action tonight as they take Ajax at Anfield.

The Reds welcome the Eredivisie champions to Merseyside in their second Group A fixture of the campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s side will be looking for a significant improvement from their last match, which saw them lose 4-1 to Napoli.

Last weekend saw Liverpool not involved in a Premier League match, after they were postponed as a mark of respect following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. As a result, the Reds will have had nearly a week to prepare for tonight’s match against Ajax.

Early team news

Andy Robertson is set to be sidelined until after the international break with a knee injury. This means that the left-back will not be involved against Ajax this evening. Kostas Tsimikas is likely to step in and deputise in the place of the Scotland international.

Jurgen Klopp also confirmed that Fabio Carvalho is back available after suffering a dead leg during the draw with Everton in the Premier League earlier this month. He missed the away trip to Napoli as a result of the issue, but is now back in training.

Other players who are ruled out for tonight’s match include Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones, Naby Keita, Ibrahima Konate, Calvin Ramsay, Caoimhin Kelleher and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Ajax named their 24-man travelling squad on Monday which will be involved against Liverpool. Manager Alfred Schreuder will be without one of his key players for their trip to Anfield.

Left-back Owen Wijndal is not included in the squad as he recovers from an ankle injury. However, defender Calvin Bassey has recovered from a knock and will be involved against Liverpool.
