Match preview

Liverpool are without both Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip for their trip to Ajax in the Champions League this evening.

Jurgen Klopp is likely to partner Fabinho with Joe Gomes for the match as a result.

“We know our vice-captain and best centre-back in the world is not playing for us for a long time,” Klopp said.

“We will try to find solutions, but I have no idea how they will look.”

Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag says Van Dijk’s absence won’t change how his side approach the match.

“At the end of the day it is about who is still playing. It’s not going to be a different Liverpool, they always play the same,” said the Dutchman.

“The quality of Man A can switch to Man B, the whole team won’t change because Virgil Van Dijk isn’t present.

“They are currently the best team in the world, if you win the Champions League and Premier League within two years you are a strong contender for the Champions League title.”
