Virgil van Dijk is 'a little bit injured' with a hamstring issue, Jürgen Klopp has confirmed.

The defender was ruled out of the Premier League clash with Manchester City on Sunday – with the risk too high to use the No.4 against the unbeaten leaders.

“[He is] a little bit injured – not really serious but too much,” the manager explained.

“It was immediately after the game [against Everton] he felt a little bit. We made an assessment.

“If it’s the last game of the season maybe you take the risk but it’s not the last game of the season obviously. That’s why we can’t take the risk.”
