The Reds fell to their second defeat of the season as Ademola Lookman’s second-half goal proved decisive at King Power Stadium, where Mohamed Salah had a penalty saved in the first period.

Post-match, Van Dijk spoke to Amazon Prime. Read a transcript of the No.4’s interview below…

On whether Leicester deserved the win…

I think they deserved the win, but it was obviously down to us. I think we were poor in the last third, in my opinion: a lot of crosses that they defended well. It was just overall not a good performance and obviously they didn’t create much, but they looked dangerous on the break, what they are obviously good at. So credit to them and we have to look at ourselves. Everyone has to look in the mirror and improve and that’s what we will do. That’s part of football as well.

On the rarity of Liverpool failing to score and whether any complacency crept in due to the number of chances being created…

We will keep trying until the very end and we created good chances in my opinion. Unfortunately today was not the day that it fell into the back of the net; a penalty missed, it can happen. It’s very disappointing for us but like I said, it’s part of football and we have to take this with us and be ready for a very big one on Sunday.
