Liverpool secured a narrow 1-0 win over Ajax in their Champions League clash at the Johan Cruyff Arena, courtesy of Nicolas Tagliafico’s comical own goal.
On the balance of play it was a victory that Jurgen Klopp’s side deserved, although Ajax had chances of their own on a wet night in Amsterdam.
Here are you Liverpool and Ajax player ratings
1. Goalkeeper & Defenders
Adrian (GK) – 5/10 – As shaky as ever but still managed to pull off a couple of very important saves.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) – 6/10 –
Concedes far too many crosses down his side of the pitch. Becoming more exposed in recent weeks for his lack of having actual defensive ability.
Joe Gomez (CB) – 6/10 –
Didn’t do too badly but was lacking sharpness in a few departments. Unsure whether to get tight or drop off. Not the same without Big Virg.
Fabinho (CB) – 8/10 –
Not exactly the perfect Virgil van Dijk replacement, but Fabinho has proven himself to be a more than valuable makeshift centre-back. Was much better in possession than Gomez and produced a stunning overhead clearance in the first half.
Andrew Robertson (LB) – 8/10 –
A constant outlet down the left hand side and caused Mazraoui plenty of issues throughout. Some great deliveries that weren’t made the most of.
