‘Liverpool have more leaders with Van Dijk out’ – Carragher salutes collective spirit in injury crisis

The Reds have seen a number of players ruled out of their plans, but a club legend has seen “three or four” stepping up to counter those absences

Liverpool have “more leadership” in the ranks now that Virgil van Dijk is stuck on the sidelines, says Jamie Carragher, with “three or four” players stepping up to counter the absence of injured stars.

The Reds have seen their squad ravaged by fitness problems over recent weeks and Jurgen Klopp has found himself down to the bare bones in defence, with Van Dijk being joined in the treatment room by Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Things have not been much better further up the field, with Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara recovering from knocks while Mohamed Salah tested positive for Covid-19.
