Fabinho admits to Van Dijk challenge

Lovren hasn't featured for Liverpool since suffering a hamstring injury during their FA Cup defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in early January and has been forced to miss the last six games in all competitions. It's not easy, especially playing for Man United, big club, to not start that well and have criticism from the media.

And the 27-year-old says he wants to be remembered as a legend at Anfield.

The Netherlands worldwide was signed from Southampton for £75million in December 2017 and has started every Premier League match this season, with Jurgen Klopp's side level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

After admitting it was "painful" to play with a broken rib the Netherlands captain added: "Maybe in the beginning of the season, you feel fresh, but during the season, nobody is pain-free".

Van Dijk told BBC Sport: "At 16, I was a slow right-back and wasn't good enough to play centre-back".

Speaking ahead of the match Jurgen Klopp said: "Dejan is not in, Joe [Gomez] is not in, but I think pretty much all the rest are in training at least". I think we have four solid defenders and with the right match I think they can perform to the best of their capabilities. I want to win each game, but for myself, I said that we are playing for the Premier League, so there is pressure. It's one of the reasons I definitely wanted to play for the club.' Helping to end Liverpool's 29-year wait for a top-flight title would certainly help to cement his legacy at Anfield.

Zion (knee) to miss Syracuse game
Freshman Cam Reddish has scored 19.8 points over the last five games, including a career high 27 against the Tar Heels. Although the Orange are unranked, they defeated Duke in overtime earlier this season and should be a stern test.

And van Dijk will likely partner Joel Matip at the heart of the Reds' defence against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, but it was down to Fabinho to deputise in midweek.

"And don't forget, Firmino will be fully fit and Van Dijk will be back". He scores goals and he's having a great impact on this team.

"When everything happened over the summer, people doubt you".

"There were lots of positives from the performance, there were lots of good displays".

"With Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren all missing, I think Klopp would have taken the clean sheet".
