Team News

Ajax are blessed with a clean bill of health for this match and could welcome the likes of Quincy Promes and Antony back into the side after they were named on the bench against Heerenveen.

Tadic has had a direct hand in 13 goals in 18 appearances in the Champions League - the most of any Ajax player since the start of the 2018-19 campaign.

Ajax possible starting lineup:
Onana; Mazraoui, Schuurs, Blind, Tagliafico; Klaassen, Kudus, Promes; Neres, Tadic, Antony

The news that Van Dijk could miss the remainder of the season with an ACL injury which requires surgery has unsurprisingly dominated the headlines in the wake of the Merseyside derby.

However, it is by no means Liverpool's only injury concern; Thiago - man of the match on his full debut at Goodison Park - was left with a knee injury which will be assessed ahead of kickoff after Richarlison's red-card challenge.

The Spain international is expected to miss out, while there have also been question marks raised over Matip after he underwent a scan on a muscle problem from the derby.

Fabinho may be forced into a makeshift centre-back role if Matip does not recover, but Liverpool's midfield ranks should be bolstered by Naby Keita, who is now back in training after being cleared to compete by a negative coronavirus test.

Alisson Becker remains sidelined, although he could return before the end of the month, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a long-term absentee.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Gomez, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
