Van Dijk: 'there's no reason to panic'

At 3-nil up last night Liverpool looked to be on their way to another massive goal haul in the Champions League.

The Reds went on to win the match in the end, but no before conceding 3 goals either side of half time and looking like they'd fall apart by the hour mark.

Thankfully Virgil Van Dijk and his defence pulled themselves together for the most part, whilst Jurgen Klopp's midfield changes eventually paid off.

But Van Dijk himself believes that, while Liverpool can still improve, last night was nothing to panic about.

He told "Our mentality is that you just keep going no matter what happens.

"If there is a goal conceded or we score a goal, we want to keep doing what we are doing. We want to keep going.

"We conceded three goals at home, obviously that is not a good sign, but that's maybe a good thing that we still have to improve - and we will. I think there is no reason for panic.

"When we conceded the first goal in the first half they kept believing. Obviously, they would never give up anyway, even if they were 4-0 down. We knew that.

"But the goal we conceded in the first half gave them a little bit more hope to go into the second half. And the second half, especially the first 20 minutes, they did well and we didn't. They were clinical with the chances they had.

"But still we should have done better. Maybe it is a good thing that we still have to improve a lot - and we will."
