The Ghana midfielder continued his rich vein of form when he fired an unstoppable strike to silence Anfield in Tuesday’s clash.
Mohammed Kudus set a new career best record by scoring five goals in his last four matches when he struck a thunderous goal during Ajax's 2-1 loss to Liverpool in their Uefa Champions League match at Anfield on Tuesday.
The Ghana midfielder started upfront for Ajax and took 27 minutes to make his presence felt when he smashed home a Steven Berghuis pass to level the scores after Egypt forward Mohamed Salah had given Liverpool a 17th-minute lead.
Berghuis picked out Kudus just on the edge of the box and the Ghanaian fired an unstoppable rocket in off the underside of the crossbar with his left foot to make it five goals in his last four games.
It is the second Champions League goal in as many games for Kudus who also scored and provided an assist as Ajax thrashed Rangers 4-0 in Amsterdam last week.
The goal against Rangers was his second of the season after opening his 2022-23 account by netting in the 4-0 league defeat of Cambuur on September 3 and followed it up with a double in Ajax’s 5-0 mauling of Heerenveen 5-0 in an Eredivisie fixture last Saturday.
Before the goal, Kudus had caused the Liverpool backline problems with his pace in behind, his first opportunity coming after eight minutes when he drove into the box but could not find the space to shoot.
The Ghanaian had an impressive first half, ending it with an 100 per cent chance conversion rate after scoring from his only shot while he won four duels and had three touches in the opposition box.
