'Klopp will keep his job' - Reactions as Liverpool bounce back from Napoli nightmare with win over Ajax
Social media reactions as Liverpool overcame a stubborn Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Merseyside reds suffered an emphatic 4-1 loss against Napoli in one of their worst performances under Jurgen Klopp.
However, the 2019 champions started brightly on the night with Mohamed Salah finally opening his Champions league account for the season after an assist from returning striker Diogo Jota in the 17th minute.
But the hosts' joy was short-lived as Ajax soon roared back into the game in brilliant fashion after a brilliant thunderbolt from Ghanaian international Mohammed Kudus 10 minutes later, giving Alisson no chance of a save.
It was fiercely contested first-half with Liverpool creating the best chances in opening 45 but both sides went into the break all square.
The second half was really more of the same as both sides continued to search for the winner.
However, it was until the 89th minute when Joel Matip found the back of the net that Anfield erupted into wild celebrations, after Liverpool looked set to drop points for another consecutive game in the Champions League.
Matip's goal would prove to be the winner as the Reds registered their first win in the champions league campaign this season.
