Liverpool to beat Fulham

Virgil van Dijk injury update

Virgil van Dijk was not named in Liverpool’s matchday squad against Arsenal in the FA Cup 3rd round after he fell ill due to a viral infection.

After the match, Jurgen Klopp provided a hilarious update on the player’s condition and suggested he could be fit again in time for the Reds’ next game.

At his post-match press conference, the Reds manager was asked if the Dutchman will return for a semi-final first-leg clash with Fulham in the League Cup on Wednesday, to which he replied: “We hope so. It’s difficult for Virgil to look sh*t, but he did.”

After facing Fulham, Liverpool will enjoy an 11-day break before their next Premier League game away at Bournemouth.
