Injury update on Virgil van Dijk after Liverpool 2 – Tottenham 1

Liverpool 2-Tottenham 1

Liverpool hosted Tottenham on Sunday as they looked to go back top of the Premier League.

The Reds would go two points clear of Manchester City with a win over Spurs. Although, Pep Guardiola’s side still have a game in hand vs Manchester United.

The game got off to a great start for Liverpool as Roberto Firmino headed them in front inside 16 minutes.

However, Spurs would start the second half much better than Liverpool and would equalise in the 70th minute.

Harry Kane did appear to take a moving free-kick in the build-up to Lucas’ goal though.

There would be one more twist in this exciting tie as Mohamed Salah forced Hugo Lloris into an error, pushing the ball towards Toby Alderweireld who scored an own goal and gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the win.

Van Dijk injury update

There was one big concern for Liverpool fans in the aftermath of Sunday’s win, however.

Virgil van Dijk appeared to pick up a knock during the second half of the Spurs fixture after colliding with Mousa Sissoko.

Speaking about van Dijk’s injury in his post-match press conference, Klopp stated:

“We have to see. I asked him and I think it was in the counter-attack situation when Sissoko hit him… I don’t know if he twisted it or it is a knock. 

“He was walking to the interviews with a big ice pack. I hope it’s nothing serious but I don’t know yet.” As quoted by Liverpool’s official website.

Liverpool’s next game is away to Southampton on Friday the 5th of April, it is not yet known if VVD will be fit.
