No decision yet over Virgil van Dijk debut

No decision yet over Virgil van Dijk debut

The Dutch star is poised to make his debut for the Reds in the FA Cup Merseyside derby clash with Everton on Friday night after completing his £75million switch from Southampton.

"I opened the door halfway because I mentioned it was the transfer window but there is nothing I can say about it which would help me, the player or the club".

Roberto Firmino has revealed what impact Virgil van Dijk has already had on his new Liverpool teammates in training.

Sam Allardyce's side are without a win in their last three games, failing to even register a shot on target during their New Year's Day defeat to Manchester United at Goodison Park.

Joel Matip could also be recalled after being named among the substitutes during the win at Burnley so Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan could drop out tomorrow night.

"Mo and Phil are not available. It was lucky", Klopp added.

A derby game is always massive in Liverpool, and although Klopp made unusual decisions in his starting eleven for their Premier League clash in December this time around there is more than derby bragging rights on the line. Sturridge has been linked with Spurs, amongst others, but a more likely departure could see Ings make a temporary move away from Anfield. "We are exactly as greedy on things like this as they all are, but we have to prove it on the pitch-I can not win the FA Cup in the press conference".

"It is clear centre-half is a position that usually needs to be tuned to the rest of the team, the kind of defending and stuff like that, but of course I can imagine everyone is desperate to see him on the pitch".

The FA Cup is universally recognized as one of the most spectacular and "democratic" competitions in the football scene.

The 21-year-old French global is an outrageously gifted footballer with a wonderful left foot who has been on the radar of a number of top clubs for some time and there surely will be movement in regards to his future if not in January then most definitely in the summer.

Sam Allardyce has made an instant impact on the Everton squad and should be credited for steadying the ship following a turbulent start to the new campaign.

The Toffees have failed to win any of their last 15 Merseyside derbies, and have not won at Anfield in any competition since 1999. "We don't waste opportunities, we want to be as successful as possible", he said.

SILVERWARE matters for Liverpool and Everton this season so the FA Cup won't be taken lightly.

Liverpool struggled to break down Everton without Philippe Coutinho last time they met in the Premier League - and they're also going to be without leading scorer Mohamed Salah. "Hopefully he will come to the club and show that he is good value for money".
