source: social media

Joel Matip scored a past due header to stable Liverpool a critical 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 nook inside the 89th minute to send Anfield wild

and ensure a 4-1 defeat at Napoli inside the starting game of Group A was fast forgotten.

With no Premier League fixture this weekend, Jurgen Klopp's guys will hope this end result

 and an advanced performance can ignite a season to which they have made a stuttering begin.
