Virgil van Dijk makes Liverpool debut

Sadio Mane's return to fitness provides a much needed boost to Jurgen Klopp, with the manager starting the attacker against Everton.

Liverpool also still haven't lost a Merseyside derby in which they've scored first since December 1992.

Virgil van Dijk said scoring the victor on his Liverpool debut was a dream come true as his header proved to be difference in his new club's 2-1 FA Cup win over Everton on Friday.

"Mo (Salah) and Phil (Coutinho) are not available".

Crystal Palace could have landed Liverpool's soon-to-be record signing Virgil van Dijk for a paltry £6m former boss Neil Warnock has revealed. "With Virgil it is different, he is healthy and now I have to make a decision for this game", explained Klopp.

And team-mate Lukaku sealed the win in the final minute of regular time to see Jose Mourinho's men through. 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.

A Roberto Firmino incident with Mason Holgate threatened to undermine the game, and there will now be an investigation into if alleged use of racist language by Firmino towards Holgate - said the Mirror.
