Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian admits missing Van Dijk

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian admits he missed Virgil van Dijk during their Champions League win at Ajax.

He is not the only key player out of action at the moment, with Adrian deputising for first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Speaking after the game, Adrian told the club's official website : "It's a big win, a massive one – three points in the Champions League and a clean sheet. It was a little bit different, strange, we missed some good players.

"I think we deserved another result in the derby but I think we reacted really well and the team showed the strong mentality that we have, a winning mentality.

"As a goalkeeper, keeping a clean sheet is a massive thing and the last few games we conceded many goals, some cheap goals. It was good keeping a clean sheet and scoring one goal to get us three points."
