What Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk said following potential injury scare with the Netherlands
Leeds vs Liverpool
Liverpool are back in Premier League action this weekend.
The Reds have had a decent start to the Premier League season, which probably should have seen them pick up three wins from three.
The Reds faced off with Chelsea in their final clash before the international break and, despite equalising right before half-time and Chelsea going a man down, Liverpool were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw as they could not break down a defiant 10-man Chelsea.
Leeds, meanwhile, are still searching for their first league win of the season, having picked up one loss and two draws in their first three matches.
Virgil van Dijk update
Before the weekend’s action, Liverpool did look to have been dealt an injury blow on Tuesday.
Virgil van Dijk would start in the Netherland’s 6-1 hammering of Turkey.
However, the defender looked to pick up an issue towards the end of the game and, when speaking post-match, Louis van Gaal stated that VVD was a little bit injured now:
“The last one, could not happen in my opinion, but it was a soft ball of our right full-back.
“And by law the goalkeeper, who played three fantastic matches, makes a mistake, also a slow ball. That’s why Virgil van Dijk is a little bit injured now.”
Losing Van Dijk again would of course be a huge blow to Liverpool. However, Van Dijk himself would speak out on the injury, stating that he is fine and already over it:
“I’m fine, luckily. I’m already over it.”
