Virgil returns but five players to miss Community Shield for LFC

Virgil Van Dijk will be available to start in the Community Shield on Saturday afternoon, after coming off in the first half against Salzburg on Tuesday.

Van Dijk suffered a cut to the head, which wasn't deemed too serious, but for a player that routinely heads away everything that's sent in his direction, it was a bit of a concern.

Unfortunately, Liverpool will be missing Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and Harry Wilson will also be unavailable, although that's likely more due to the fact that he'll be moving on before the season gets under way.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, though, could be in contention after missing the club's Austrian pre-season training camp over the past two weeks.
