In the first round of the Champions League group stage, Mane's cross caused the opposing defender to take his own own goal. Liverpool defeated Ajax 1-0.
After the match, Liverpool midfielder Milner said in an interview with BT Sport: “It’s always important to have a good start. The first game of the Champions League group stage is a tricky away game, so winning is like an extra reward, and so is the opponent. An excellent team. They are very organized and pass control. We have just experienced ups and downs this week, so the important thing is to get back to who we were before. I have no less expectations for my teammates than before."
"Fabinho is a top player, such a top player can adapt (different positions), he did it. He also served as a central defender before and played very well. I think the overall performance of the team is very good. Because today’s opponents are very difficult and need to be physically confronted under very difficult circumstances."
"When it comes to scoring, we need to learn all the lessons. We have enough opportunities, but unfortunately we haven't scored more goals. We have counterattacked many times but failed to score. This is an important zero. We have adjusted our personnel this week, and our opponents are still very good, so it is very important to complete zero seals and get three points this time."
