      Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk is to see a specialist to assess the extent of his hamstring injury.

      The Netherlands defender, who has played in every Liverpool league game this season, was substituted at half-time in Monday's defeat at Brentford.

      There is no timescale on how long Van Dijk will be out for but the injury appears worse than originally thought.

      After the defeat by Brentford, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said: "Virgil felt a little bit the muscle and said it is fine, and he is a very good judge of these kind of things. But I didn't want to take any risks.

      "The physios looked quite happy when I said we don't take risks. It's not an injury, he just felt the intensity."

      We shall see soon enough, still unknown how bad it is.

      Where'd you hear "out for a couple of weeks"?
      I heard it was his hammy, which usually means longer on the sidelines....

      Deffo a month or longer.

      He's been not in great from all season but we'll probably miss him much more than you would think.

      Particularly if Matip/Konate can’t keep fit for more than a couple of games at a time. For all you could say about Virgil this season, he’s been ever present.

      Will be missed but a forced break may help him.
