Jurgen Klopp Confirms Virgil Van Dijk And Joe Gomez Could Start Against Norwich

Posted by

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez will be available to start Liverpool’s Premier League opener against Norwich on Saturday, according to Jurgen Klopp.

Both players have been rehabilitating from long-term knee problems, with the Dutchman making his long-awaited return last month against Hertha Berlin.

Despite the fact that Van Dijk has only played 70 minutes against Athletic Club and Gomez has only played an hour against CA Osasuna since then, Klopp is confident that both players will be ready to start their league opener at Carrow Road if called upon.

Both players will be eligible for the match this weekend, according to the German coach, but no final decisions on their participation have been made.

‘I think so, it looks like [they are available to start]. But how it is with these kind of things, we have nothing to rush in this department,’ Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
