Liverpool sweating over Salah strain

Mohamed Salah will be key for Liverpool when they take on Manchester City believes Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk has admitted Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Manchester City in the Champions League was "massive", but says that his side are braced for a response in next week's second leg.

"We will see, I don't know at the moment".

"But if I said now that Kevin De Bruyne should have no chance, I'd be lying".

"They are going to be the big favourites but I think we have played a lot of games where it was possible to score three goals so why not?"

De Bruyne said he still has belief City can turn the tie around but admits it will take something special at the Etihad next week to make it happen. "So for them it's the biggest thing".

De Bruyne could well have voted for global compatriot Romelu Lukaku up top but we'll just have to wait and see with that, while the Belgian midfielder understandably opted for Liverpool talisman Mo Salah as his Player of the Year. I think he's up there with [Harry] Kane, me and David [Silva] for me.

"He is an all-around team player".

However, the CGF insists that athletes should take prior permissions, failing which can result in unspecified sanctions. Furthermore, talking to PTI, a top official from the contingent said that there has been no wrongdoing from India .

"I play like a central midfielder now, I need to do a lot of stuff, but the thing I'm happy about is I could play nearly every minute without any problems and play at a level that's consistently high". We have a lot of confidence in our qualities so we'll see.

"I don't look at what happened before".

"It would be nice, obviously", the 26-year-old Belgium worldwide added. "But I think if supporters do that without being violent then I think it's okay".

Liverpool's players were spurred on by the raucous atmosphere at Anfield on Wednesday night, and De Bruyne is hoping his side will experience similar in front of their own fans next week.

"It would be nice, obviously", he said.

City and Liverpool have played each other 207 times since their first game in 1893 when the Citizens were called Ardwick - however, Tuesday's clash marks the first time the clubs meet in Europe. Hopefully we can do well and win it.
