Joel Matip’s 89th-minute header gave the Reds a priceless 2-1 victory at Anfield on Tuesday, just as it looked as if their indifferent start to the season was about to continue. Mohamed Salah had given them a first-half lead, only for Mohammed Kudus to level for Ajax before the break.

After the match, Klopp said, “I’m not picky, but it was a nice celebration and showed everything that the boys thought today. Nothing is ‘over’, either negative or positive, it is the first step, but a very important step for us. Now we have a strange break, pretty long.

Victory over Ajax was only the third that Liverpool have recorded in eight competitive games this season, but it helps lift the gloom which had appeared after the 4-1 thrashing away to Napoli in their opening Champions League group match.
