Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were in cruise control with maximum points from their opening three group games, but last week’s 2-0 home defeat to Atalanta has blown things wide open.
Liverpool still lead the group with two games remaining, but with Ajax and Atalanta just two points behind, Klopp cannot afford another slip-up and Anfield.
