“I watched the game what they did. There are certain things they’ve done that apply to us from the Man United game,” said Schreuder.

“Tonight we have a team meeting and we’ll see what to do and maybe do a few things differently. We put our best team on the field to challenge for us tomorrow.’

Liverpool need to show an urgent response this week after being humiliated in the first round of the group stage and losing 4-1 to Napoli in Naples.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp called on his beleaguered side to reinvent himself.

But Schreuder is under no illusion that the magnitude of the task ahead of his side, which defeated Rangers 4-0 on matchday one, remains enormous.

“We expect to get into a storm,” he added. ‘

We are good too. We try to play our own game. But Liverpool is a team that is really good. You must have courage and tomorrow if we can, we have a chance. If you don’t have it, it becomes difficult, especially one-on-one.’

Just two wins from their first six league games this season have left Klopp and some of his players questioning.

The defeat to Napoli raised further questions as to whether a change is needed now, but Schreuder is confident the German is not going anywhere and his side could do real damage on Tuesday.

Ajax lost 1-0 on their last trip to Anfield, in the 2020-21 season, but made it awkward enough to show they belong at this level.

A dominant win over Rangers reaffirmed Schreuder that despite major departures this summer – namely Antony to Manchester United for £85.5 million – Ajax remains a force to be reckoned with.

‘Ajax has shown in recent years that we can participate at this level,’ says Schreuder.

‘It is a great compliment for the people here (at Ajax) to get a strong team again.

‘We have attracted a few players and some young players have been added, which suits Ajax (method). It gives us new energy.

“We have players who want to improve. The moment wasn’t perfect (to lose Antony), but it’s a challenge to move on. We moved on. Every match is a new test.’
