Van Dijk and Salah will miss league clash but will be fit for UCL final

Jurgen Klopp

Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah were both injured in the win of Liverpool over Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

In two weeks, Liverpool will play Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the Stade de France. However, both Van Dijk and Salah will be available.

During the pre-match press conference on Monday, Klopp was asked if they will face Southampton: “No. Virg definitely not but that was pretty much clear before the [Chelsea] game already that I thought, ‘OK, this is the game now.’ He played really a lot and then Saturday-Tuesday again. It was clear.

“They are both OK. So, the target would be for both that they can be involved again on the weekend. Properly involved, bench or whatever and a few minutes or start, I don’t know, we will see that, because that would then be perfect for the game [Champions League final].

“But if not then we take each day afterwards. But we are very positive, or [have] no doubt about the final. I’m pretty realistic about the Wolves game, but tomorrow rather not.”
