Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has given reasons why he brought off Virgil van Dijk at half time, as they lost 3-1 at Brentford on Monday night.

The Reds were already two goals down at the point, after Ben Mee and Yoane Wissa scored in the first half.

Alot of observers felt Klopp had taken off Van Dijk because he was playing badly.

Kostas Tsimikas and Harvey Elliott were also withdrawn and Liverpool’s performance improved markedly in the second half, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pulling a goal back shortly after the restart.

But the former Borussia Dortmund boss insisted after the game that the Dutchman was injured.

“Virgil felt his hamstring a little bit. He said he was fine but when I said “we don’t take any risks” the physios were quite happy with that.

“I think it’s nothing serious, but that’s why we changed him,” Klopp told beIN Sports
