Team News

Liverpool were able to welcome Jordan Henderson back from injury off the bench at the weekend, paving the way for the captain to start this match.

No sooner had he returned than James Milner took his place in the treatment room, though, with the utility man's hamstring injury proving to be the match which lit the touchpaper in Klopp's post-match interview.

Milner is one of eight players expected to be missing for Liverpool, with Klopp having also confirmed that Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be back in time for this match or Sunday's game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Naby Keita, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Xherdan Shaqiri and Trent Alexander-Arnold are also likely to miss this match, with the latter thought to be closest of those to returning.

Given Klopp's complaints over the schedule there is likely to be plenty of rotation in the coming weeks too, with Sadio Mane and Joel Matip sitting out at the weekend and Mohamed Salah being taken off shortly after the hour mark.

Matip's absence was reportedly solely down to him being rested rather than any injury concerns and so he should return, while Rhys Williams is likely to partner him in central defence.

Neco Williams, Curtis Jones, Kostas Tsimikas and Divock Origi are among the other players pushing to start, although the need to win one of the remaining games - and the fact that they are not in action until Sunday night this weekend - may curb Klopp's urge to rotate to a certain extent.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; N Williams, R Williams, Matip, Tsimikas; Jones, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Ajax, meanwhile, are likely to be without former Manchester United man Daley Blind after he sustained a hamstring injury against Midtjylland last week.

Summer signing Mohammed Kudus is also a long-term absentee after requiring surgery on the knee injury he picked up in the reverse fixture against Liverpool on matchday one.

Antony is now back fit again, however, returning on Saturday after overcoming a hamstring injury.
Ajax possible starting lineup:
Onana; Mazraoui, Schuurs, Martinez, Tagliafico; Labyad, Klaassen, Gravenberch; Neres, Traore, Tadic

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Ajax
