Liverpool face Ajax in the Champions League looking to bounce back from what was a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home against Atalanta in their last European game.

Despite that defeat, the Reds still sit top of Group D but are just two points ahead of their Dutch visitors and the Serie A side.

Jurgen Klopp knows that a win similar to their 1-0 victory in Amsterdam back in October will guarantee their passage to the last-16 and end a two match winless streak following their 1-1 draw with Brighton on Saturday.

The German boss voiced his concern at this season’s schedule following the match at the Amex Stadium and, with Wolves to come this weekend, is expected to rotate his squad once again.

So which players will the Reds chief pick to try and secure qualification into the knockout phase?

Here we predict the Liverpool’s starting XI to take on Ajax at Anfield…


A pretty obvious call between the sticks once again as Alisson gets set to make his 101st Liverpool appearance. The Brazilian has been in good form since returning from an early season injury and injects calmness into the defenders in front of him. Will be aiming to keep his third clean sheet of the competition this season (Adrian played in the reverse 1-0 win at Ajax).
