Injury-hit Liverpool continue with their relentless fixture list with a Champions League game against Ajax on Tuesday.

The Reds drew with Brighton at the weekend, while the Dutch side had an easy 5-0 win over relegation-threatened FC Emmen.

It’s Liverpool who are top of Group D in Europe though and a point here secures their last-16 qualification.

Jurgen Klopp’s team have only won one of their last four in all competitions as they contend with an injury pile-up in the squad.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

When is the game?

The match kicks off at 8pm on Tuesday, 1 December at Anfield.

Where can I watch it?

The game will be shown live on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can stream the match via the BT Sport app and desktop website.

What is the team news?

Liverpool’s injury issues continue to mount up, with James Milner going off at the weekend with an apparent hamstring strain. He joins Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the sidelines. Xherdan Shaqiri has also been missing recently, while Nat Phillips is inelligible. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on his way back but not likely to feature.

Mohammed Kudus is out injured for Ajax, but other than that they have an entirely fit squad to choose from.

Confirmed line-ups

Liverpool XI: Kelleher, N. Williams, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Jones, Mane, Salah, Jota

Ajax XI: Onana, Schuurs, Alvarez, Klaassen, Neres, Gravenberch, Tadic, Mazraoui, Blind, Tagliafico, Antony

Odds

Liverpool - 13/8

Draw - 7/2

Ajax - 4/1

Prediction

It might not be as pretty as the history and recent success of these sides suggest it could have been at another time, but any win will do for the Reds. Liverpool 1-0 Ajax
