Virgil van Dijk out vs Man City

Former Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk is going to have wait a little longer to make his Liverpool debut in the Premier League.

The 75 million pound Dutch defender scored the winner in front of the Kop against Everton in the FA Cup.

However, hours before Sunday’s huge Premier League match at Anfield with Man City, the Liverpool Echo have confirmed that VVD is out of the game.

Shocker for Liverpool: VVD debut postponed

The Echo broke the bad news as follows:

Virgil van Dijk is set to miss Liverpool’s Premier League showdown with Manchester City at Anfield today.

The ECHO understands that the £75million centre-back has been hampered by a tight hamstring and is unlikely to be risked against the leaders.

That’s a nightmare for Jurgen Klopp heading into one of the biggest games of the season.

Liverpool are likely to line up Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip at the heart of their defence against Man City.

Will that duo be able to stop Sergio Aguero from scoring? Interestingly, the Argentine has never managed to score at Anfield in his Premier League career.
