Virgil van Dijk has provided an injury update

Virgil van Dijk needed ice on his ankle after a dramatic 2-1 win over Tottenham, but played the full game against Spurs.

Although, after the game, the defender claimed that he will be fit for Friday’s game against Southampton.

“I’m fine,” he told BBC Sport.

Van Dijk’s fitness will be fully assessed at Melwood on Monday when Jurgen Klopp’s squad take part in a warm-down session.

The Reds are currently 1st in the league with 79 points, two points ahead of 2nd placed Manchester City who have played a game less.
