Michael Owen reacts to Liverpool FC’s 1-0 win at Ajax

Thiago Alcantara will be crucial to Liverpool coping without Virgil van Dijk

Klopp has been fostering a siege mentality among his players since the Everton game and their backs to the wall spirit was on full display when Fabinho raced back to clear Tadic's lob off the line with a superb overhead kick.

The former Monaco midfielder was making his second start of the season in central defence but like at Chelsea a few weeks back, Fabinho was incredibly impressive in an unfavoured role.

The Brazil global, who typically plays in Liverpool's midfield three, said after the match that Klopp has told him to be more vocal on the pitch, especially when he is playing as a centre-back.

"So, you could see that, but we won the game and I am completely fine". 'It's not easy but I have to do a little of what Virgil always does - talk to the team and try to be a leader.

"But, again, if it isn't your absolute best day and you have to put a proper shift in, the boys did that and I like that".

"If they could get a clean sheet was important with Fabinho and Gomez starting together for the first time". Daley [Blind] is very good at that, he's so calm on the ball.

Van Dijk suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the Merseyside derby after a challenge by Everton's Jordan Pickford.

A player like Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly might fit the bill as he has qualities similar to Van Dijk, but he is 29 and would probably be far too expensive for Liverpool both in the transfer fee and in wages.

"We know our vice-captain and best centre-back in the world is not playing for us for a long time", Klopp said. But overall I'm happy with the game. And he's a leader on the team and in the dressing room - he keeps a good mood and a good atmosphere.

That was tested sooner than expected when he had to field the Brazil worldwide in the 2-0 win at Chelsea in their second match of the season, with Fabinho excelling in that game.

He, along with Matip, is a doubt for Wednesday's game and their return to Premier League action against Sheffiled United at the weekend.
