Liverpool may have kept up their stunning start to the season with a thumping 3-0 rout of Southampton at Anfield yesterday, though it wasn’t all good on Merseyside yesterday. Indeed, with Virgil van Dijk having to go off against his former club, many are worried ahead of a huge couple of weeks.
While the full extent on the Dutchman’s injury isn’t yet known, the Reds have some very difficult games coming up. The likes of Chelsea, Napoli and Manchester City lie in wait for Jurgen Klopp’s men across all competitions and the transformative effect Van Dijk has on the Liverpool backline means their opposition would surely fancy their chances.
Hopefully for Klopp, the world’s most expensive defender will be fit and available for this difficult run, though his limping off against the Saints sparked quite the meltdown on social media.
With that in mind, here’s what Liverpool fans had to say about yesterday’s Virgil van Dijk blow.
There's a lot said about the effect Van Dijk has had but its testament to how good Joe Gómez has been this season that we haven't skipped a beat back there since he went off. #lfc

Hope Van Dijk is ok considering the schedule coming up. Need him for the Chelsea/City EPL and Napoli UCL matches
