Champions League holders Liverpool collected another victory in their relentless campaign by sneaking past Genk at a subdued Anfield.

Jürgen Klopp's side lost to Napoli in their opening Group E game - their only loss in any competition this season - but have picked up three straight wins to move towards the knockout stages.

Minutes ago at Anfield, Georginio Wijnaldum stabbed into the roof of the net from close range after captain Sebastian Dewaest made a mess of clearing James Milner's low cross.

With the hosts failing to build on their 14th-minute lead, Genk's Tanzanian striker Mbwana Samatta powerfully headed in the equaliser at the near post from a corner five minutes before half-time.

But having scored twice in Belgium when Genk were beaten 4-1 on 23 October, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the match-winner early in the second half, spinning and converting a low strike into the bottom corner.

Liverpool move top of the group ahead of Serie A side Napoli, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Red Bull Salzburg.

Elsewhere on the night, 

Chelsea came back from 4-1 down to draw a Champions League thriller against an Ajax side who had two men sent off.

Tammy Abraham scored an early own goal, Jorginho equalised with a penalty but Quincy Promes then headed Ajax ahead.

Kepa Arrizabalaga's own goal and Donny van de Beek's low strike gave Ajax a three-goal lead at Stamford Bridge.

Cesar Azpilicueta pulled one back, Ajax had Daley Blind and Joel Veltman sent off before Jorginho's second penalty and Reece James' effort made it 4-4.

Chelsea thought they had grabbed a sensational victory when Azpilicueta smashed a loose ball into the net but the goal was ruled out after a video assistant referee review showed the ball had struck Abraham's arm before falling for the Blues captain.

It leaves three teams on seven points in Group H, with Ajax moving top on goal difference, Chelsea second and Valencia third after they beat Lille 4-1 in Spain.
