Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk has called on his side to improve their squad for the English Premier League title after losing to Leicester City.
Van Dijk did not stand behind the sacks to justify the “Reds”‘s second defeat of the season, although Adomola Lukman’s winning goal came from a single shot against Liverpool, while Egyptian star Mohamed Salah missed a penalty. Kick in the first half.
Liverpool, who have failed to net their opponents for the first time in 29 domestic matches, are hoping to return to winning and title racing when they move to Chelsea in the structure of the 21st round on Sunday.
Van Dijk hoped the players would read carefully the reasons for the defeat against the team, which had suffered a humiliating 3-6 defeat to defending champions and champions Manchester City in the previous round.
“Everyone should look in the mirror and grow,” the Dutch defender told Amazon Prime, adding that the word “surrender” was not in Liverpool’s dictionary, especially since many factors could arise in a race to become Premier League champions.
He stressed that the league is still long: “We’re still in December, the season is still long, a lot of things could change.”
He added: “There is no point in looking at Manchester City, Chelsea or any of the other clubs around us. We need to look at and improve our performance. ”
Liverpool, led by Salah and Senegal’s Sadio Mane, will join its squad for the 2021 African Nations Cup scheduled for January 9, February 6, 2022 in Cameroon to enjoy its next fruits without its many stars.
Liverpool are second in the league with 41 points, tied with Chelsea and 6 points behind City.
