Liverpool will try to overcome a 1-0 deficit against Southampton in the 2017 EFL Cup semi-final on Wednesday, as Jurgen Klopp attempts to guide his team to Wembley Stadium in the second leg at Anfield.
Saints grabbed a precious lead in the first leg, with Nathan Redmond’s cool finish separating the Premier League sides.
Southampton deserved their advantage, and they could feasibly have put the tie out of reach of their opponents with more composure in front of goal.
“He could not continue the game,” Puel said. “We will see for the next games. I don’t know if we can recover him. He took a big kick and we will see if we can recover him for this game. We will see in the morning [Monday]. I hope we can have Virgil of course because he is our captain and he’s an important player.”
Van Dijk’s absence would be a boost for Liverpool’s attack, and the hosts must score or face elimination.
Under-fire goalkeeper Loris Karius was Klopp’s saviour at St. Mary’s Stadium, stopping Southampton from gaining a substantial advantage before the second leg.
Klopp has encouraged home fans to propel their team to victory at Anfield and has urged the Kop to create a special atmosphere to intimidate the visiting side.
Liverpool have been in a bit of a rut in 2017, unable to pick up the wins that they were picking up at will last year. The Reds will need to find a way to get out of that rut on Wednesday, if they are to seal a place in the final of the League Cup (ok, EFL Cup). Liverpool host Southampton in the second leg of the semi-final of the EFL Cup on Wednesday, 25 January. The Reds will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing defeat to Swansea in the Premier League.
