Jurgen Klopp has delivered a confidence-boosting message to Liverpool supporters ahead of the club’s Premier League season opener against Norwich, with the Reds boss revealing that Virgil van Dijk is ready to start.
It has been a long road back to full fitness for a talismanic figure at Anfield, but pre-season outings have helped him to rediscover match sharpness and it could be that he – along with fellow long-term injury victim Joe Gomez – figures from the off at Carrow Road on Saturday.
A succession of untimely knocks delivered a humbling fall from grace for the Reds last season, but they are getting back to full strength – with Andy Robertson the only regular starter stuck on the treatment table at present.
Klopp added on whether those outings present him with a selection poser: “It does, it does. It sends a good message actually: that’s the way we have to play, that’s the way you have to perform. If you want to be in the team that’s actually the lowest level allowed and so that’s what we have to try now to figure out.
