Ramsay, 19, was suffering a back issue after moving to Anfield before he sustained an ankle knock.

However, the defender has now made two appearances for Liverpool under-21s. He came off the bench to score in a 3-2 loss to Accrington Stanley in Papa John’s Trophy last week before playing the first half in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat of Everton in the mini-derby.

Ramsay trained with Jurgen Klopp’s side yesterday at the AXA Training Centre.

There being some initial woes that Ramsay had not travelled to Amsterdam when pictures were uploaded of the Liverpool squad boarding the plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

But video footage of the squad on their travels to Ajax has indeed confirmed Ramsay is present with the rest of his team-mates.

That means Liverpool are set to welcome back three players to their squad at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Darwin Nunez missed the 1-0 loss at Nottingham Forest because of a tight hamstring.

Meanwhile, Ibrahima Konate will be back involved after being absent for the past three games because of a muscle injury.

A point for the Reds will see them move into the last 16 of the Champions League.
