  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! SALAH DRILLS LIVERPOOL AHEAD!!!! 1-0!!!!!! Jota finds Salah on this occasion and the forward makes no mistake burying his left-footed strike past Pasveer. Jota makes a good run and draws in defenders to open up space for Salah. He finds Salah with a good pass, allowing the Egypt international to take one touch before firing into the bottom-right corner.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! MATIP HEADS HOME!!!!!! 2-1 LIVERPOOL!!!  Liverpool finally break down the Ajax rearguard in the second half as Matip rises and plants a header over the line, despite the best attempts of Tadic to keep it out. Matip connects with a cross from Tsimikas from the left flank, directing his attempt past Pasveer. And although Tadic heads it away, the ball clearly crosses the line with the referee receiving the signal on his watch.
