Virgil van Dijk slams Liverpool teammates in damning post-match interview after Man Utd

Virgil van Dijk slams Liverpool teammates in damning post-match interview after Man Utd

Virgil van Dijk pulled no punches in his post-match interview following Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Man United.

Virgil van Dijk slammed his Liverpool teammates after the Reds drew 2-2 with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool went 1-0 up in the first half through Luis Diaz after a dominant spell.

United had not mustered up a shot in the opening 45 minutes but levelled matters not long after the restart.

Jarell Quansah gave the ball away cheaply and United skipper Bruno Fernandes lobbed Caoimhin Kelleher from the centre circle.

Kobbie Mainoo put United in the lead with another worldie strike as Liverpool lost control.

Jurgen Klopp's side bagged a late equaliser through a Mo Salah penalty after Harvey Elliott won a spot-kick.

Liverpool's dropped points comes after high-scoring wins for Manchester City and Arsenal as the title race continues to heat up.

The Reds have failed to beat United in three games this season, drawing twice in the league and losing in the FA Cup quarter-final after leading in extra time.

And captain Van Dijk did not pull any punches in his assessment of what went wrong for his team, adding that the result "feels like a loss".

"Obviously it's our own fault again," he said, speaking to Sky Sports.

"We should've been 2-0 up at least at half time.

"We had them under control and it's just a shame you know. It definitely feels like a loss at this point.

"Because we were wasteful with our chances we gave them a lifeline. "Unfortunately individual mistakes happen in a game but there was still so much time to put it right.

"We were in a rush, we were losing too many balls and challenges in midfield... it feels like a loss."

Van Dijk stressed that Liverpool now "have to make it up" in the coming games.

The Merseysiders host Atalanta in the Europa League quarter-final on Thursday before they welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield next weekend.

They then play three away games in a row against Fulham, Everton and West Ham.

Games against Spurs, Aston Villa and Wolves complete their Klopp's final Premier League campaign.
