Virgil Van Dijk injury: Dutch defender forced off against Southampton
He said: 'I couldn't shout anymore, ' so that's obviously 60 percent less of his level. "I didn't hear anything different". Van Dijk was seen on the bench later in the second half rather than in the dressing room receiving treatment.

Professor Maria Chatzaki, at the Democritus University of Thrace said, 'It's as if the spiders are taking advantage of these conditions and are having a kind of a party. Basically, when the conditions are appropriate, these spiders get a chance to overeat and mate. Tetragnatha spiders are often mating in the summer and early autumn months.

Fortunately, while it is quite a freaky sight to those who are unfamiliar to it, the spider party isn't harmful to the people or the environment.

Though those with phobias may find the sudden presence frightening, experts say these spiders aren't risky to humans and were likely just taking advantage of favorable mating conditions. The spiders are likely from the genus Tetragnatha which are commonly known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies. Chatzaki also added that the spiders usually do the same thing every couple of years, where they turn the whole town into a horrific bacchanalia and die soon afterwards. Plus, they probably won't stick around too long.
