James Milner praised Liverpool’s determination to secure a 1-0 victory at AFC Ajax to kick off their Champions League group stage campaign

The Reds edged out the Eredivisie side in Amsterdam on Wednesday night with a homeward goal in the first half from Nicolas Tagliafico, although the visitors were helped by an objective clearance from Fabinho – who was deployed to the central rear – and later the woodwork

In the end it was a positive and enjoyable start for Group D with loads from Jürgen Klopp setting the tone early alongside Atalanta BC

After the match Milner reflected on the nature of the fight, Fabinho’s impressive display in defense, and Curtis Jones’ European debut with BT Sport…

It’s always important to start well, we did it A tough away game also for the first time, that’s a bonus It’s a very good team, well organized and they play good football And we had a week of ups and downs or so as well so it was important to bounce back with a good performance We did it and I expected nothing less from this group of players

He’s a top player The best players can adapt and he’s done it He’s played there before and done it extremely well Amazing clearance too, obviously I thought that was a good team performance, it was very difficult there; it’s a good team, it was also a physical battle, the conditions were tough It was kind of like an old-fashioned English game, really We managed to get the win and that was the most important thing tonight – make sure we get all three points

Yeah, but you take anything We had enough chances, really, we were disappointed not to score more in the first half, especially [when] we had quite a few blockers. attacks where we did not finish the situation with the right last ball But it’s a big clean sheet Especially with the changes we’ve made, and coming here they make a good team, so it was important to get that clean sheet and the own goal was enough

He’s a really good player, you know I’m sure it will be the first of many [With] changes and things like that, he didn’t know he was playing until yesterday quite late. is a very good player I thought he did well, it’s not a reflection on him at halftime It’s the first of very many European nights for him, because he is a top player level
