Virgil van Dijk’s defending when Moussa Sissoko and Heung-Min Son were two on one against him was sensational.
But it did cost our no.4 slightly, as you could see the Dutchman hobbling with a slight ankle issue afterwards.
In this post-match interview, you can see van Dijk’s ankle strapped up – with the player admitting he’s in pain as well.
Thankfully though, when asked if he’ll make Southampton on Friday night, van Dijk was confident.
“We have to take a look at it, but I’ll be fine for Friday,” he said.

We just hope Liverpool’s medical team agrees…
Dejan Lovren is back fit and was on the bench for yesterday’s win, while Joe Gomez isn’t far off a return himself – but van Dijk is on whole different level to anyone else we have as a central defensive option.
