Van Dijk demands bounce back

Virgil van Dijk was unable to hide his disappointment after Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat to Atalanta on Thursday night.

“Obviously it’s half-time but 3-0 down is not great and a very disappointing evening of course,” said the Reds skipper. “I think too many individual mistakes and we got punished for it and yeah, this feels bad.

“It hurts of course. We didn’t lose here for a long time but credit to them – we shouldn’t take the credit from them away. They punished us for being sloppy, especially in possession, and obviously we still had chances to do it, to score at least one or two, and unfortunately we didn’t.

“We have made it very hard for ourselves, going there 3-0 down, but we focus on Crystal Palace. We have to bounce back and the only way to do it is obviously winning that game on the weekend. Like I said, we need everyone to quickly switch it back on and then we will focus on putting out at least four goals over there.”
