Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder expects his side to face a storm against Liverpool at Anfield but hopes he can take advice from former boss Erik Ten Hag to help his side do face.
Last week, Jurgen Klopp’s side were humiliated 4-1 by Napoli in their Group A opener, a match the Reds manager described as the worst performance of his tenure.
With last weekend’s Premier League games postponed following the Queen’s death, players have been waiting for competitive action for nearly a week and Schreuder expects a response in front of their own fans.
“Yes, we expect to come into a storm. We are also good. We try to play our own game,” he said.
“You have to have courage and tomorrow, if we get there, we have a chance. If you don’t have it, it’s going to be difficult, especially one-on-one.
Schreuder’s predecessor Ten Hag has already recorded a win over Liverpool this season as the new Manchester United manager and current Ajax boss have studied the performance as part of their preparations.
“I watched the game what they did. There are some things they did that are applicable to us from the Manchester United game,” he added.
