Virgil van Dijk has criticised Liverpool’s attackers and the team’s performance as after the Premier League title contenders were beaten 1-0 by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The Reds should have been ahead after 15 minutes when Mohamed Salah won a penalty, but the Egyptian forward saw his spot-kick saved and his rebound header hit the bar.

While Sadio Mane also missed a couple of chances for Liverpool.

Speaking after the game Van Dijk said:

“I think they [Leicester] deserved the win but that was obviously also down to us. I think we were poor in the last third.


“A lot of crosses they defended well. Overall, not a good performance. They didn’t create much but looked dangerous on the break which they are good at.


“Credit to them. We have to look at ourselves and improve, which we will do. It’s part of football.


“We will keep trying until the very end. We created good chances but unfortunately today wasn’t the day it went in the back of the net. Penalty miss, which happens. But it’s disappointing.


“Obviously you don’t want to concede at all. We let [Ademola Lookman] get into space and unfortunately the goal went in.


“But we had moments we reacted and created chances to do better. You have to give them credit as well.”
