Liverpool condemned Manchester City to their first domestic defeat of the season despite the absence of new centre-back Virgil van Dijk.
Talk ahead of the late kick-off on Sunday suggested the £75 million defender would not be making his Premier League debut due to a problem with his hamstring. News which was confirmed officially by Jurgen Klopp when the team line-ups were announced. "[He is] a little bit injured – not really serious," he explained. "It was immediately after the [Everton] game he felt [his hamstring] a little bit. We made an assessment. If it’s the last game of the season maybe you take the risk." The former Southampton defender watched on from the stands as his new teammates edged a seven-goal thriller, a match described as "historical" by Klopp and one "you will talk about in 20 years." The Reds have the luxury of an 8-day break before their next match which should ensure that van Dijk is back in contention. Jan 14 - 4:17 PM
