Draw Against Man United Feels Like Loss  –Van Dijk

Virgil Van Dijk has said Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford feels like a loss for the Reds.

Liverpool were dominant during the first half at Old Trafford, as a Luis Diaz goal put Jurgen Klopp’s on course to regain their position at the top of the Premier League table.

But despite creating several clear opportunities, Liverpool only went in at half-time 1-0 ahead.

And the Reds were punished early in the second half after a Jarell Quansah mistake was pounced on by Bruno Fernandes, who scored a long-range equaliser.

Exciting youngster Kobiie Mainoo then gave United a 2-1 lead before Aaron Wan Bissaka conceded a penalty, which Mohamed Salah equalised from.

But the result at Old Trafford is a blow to Klopp’s team, with Arsenal now leading the table on goal difference and reigning champions Manchester City just a point behind.

Reacting to the outcome of the result, Van Dijk was unequivocal on where the blame lies over two dropped points against their struggling rivals.

When asked by Sky Sports, via The Athletics, if the result felt like a blow, the Liverpool captain referenced their 4-3 FA Cup defeat against United three weeks earlier. He said: “Of course. Obviously, it’s our own fault again.

“We should have been 2-0 up at least at half-time. We created dangerous moments and we had the match under control and it’s just a shame. Definitely feels like a loss at this point.

“Obviously, because we were wasteful in our chances, we gave them a lifeline and unfortunately, individual mistakes can happen in the game, but there was still so much time to put it right.

“We were in a rush, losing too many balls and challengers in midfield, then obviously, it could be a wide open game instead of keeping it calm, but yeah, it feels like a loss.”
