'Sensational': Chris Sutton stunned by what Liverpool star did in 66th minute last night

Liverpool got back to winning ways in the Champions League thanks to a 2-1 win over Ajax at Anfield on Tuesday night.

The Reds were desperate to make amends for their 4-1 hammering at Napoli last week.

Liverpool began brightly and went ahead 17 minutes in, Mohamed Salah sweeping home Diogo Jota’s pass.

However, Ajax – who had barely threatened – equalised in the 27th minute.

Steven Berghuis played in Mohammed Kudus, who thumped home off the underside of the bar.

Liverpool worked hard to try and restore their lead, but had little joy for most of the match.

Then, in the 89th minute, Kostas Tsimikas whipped a corner towards Matip, who duly headed over the line.

Although an Ajax defender stopped the ball from hitting the back of the net, the goal was rightly given.

Luis Diaz delivered an impressive performance for Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield.

He played a big role in the opener, his header setting Jota on the way to assist Salah.

And in the 66th minute, Diaz carved out a superb opportunity for himself to nearly make it two.

He raced onto Trent Alexander-Arnold’s searching pass and got to the touchline before darting back inside.

However, Jurrien Timber got over in time to block his shot, not far from the Ajax goal.

Nonetheless, BBC Sport pundit Chris Sutton loved what he saw from the Colombia international.

“Sensational from Diaz,” he said on BBC Radio 5 Live (13/9, 21:27).

“It’s a raking diagonal ball from Alexander-Arnold, which must have gone 60 yards.

“Diaz not only keeps the ball in, but he lures Rensch in.

“He drives into the box but Timber is super alert to clear the danger.”
