Liverpool vs. Ajax result and highlight
Joel Matip scored a late header to secure Liverpool a crucial 2-1 Champions League victory over Ajax at Anfield.
The Reds looked to be heading for a damaging home draw after seeing Mohamed Salah's opener cancelled out by a thunderous Mohammed Kudus strike in the first half.
However, Matip rose highest from a corner in the 89th minute to send Anfield wild and ensure a 4-1 defeat at Napoli in the opening game of Group A was quickly forgotten.
With no Premier League fixture this weekend, Jurgen Klopp's men will hope this result and an improved performance can ignite a season to which they have made a stuttering start.
