Virgil van Dijk injury update sounds like good news for Liverpool

Losing Van Dijk would’ve been a big blow for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as he is, hands down, the club’s best defender, and not having him in the team for any sustained period would surely have been a serious dent to the team’s title ambitions for this season.

However, it seems like Van Dijk’s injury isn’t serious after all, and it appears a quick return is probably likely if Bond’s claim proves correct.
