Carragher: Liverpool finding new leaders in Van Dijk absence

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes the knee injury suffered by Virgil van Dijk has been a positive for some teammates.

Carragher is seeing new leaders emerge in the absence of the Holland defender.

He explained, "When you have the huge figure you look at in a certain position, and he's gone, it's up to others to step in.

"Sometimes it's not just one player, it can be three or four at once.

"What we are seeing now is that there is perhaps much more leadership from others."
