​Van Dijk not concerned about Liverpool clean sheets

Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk is not worried about the team's lack of clean sheets.

The Reds were unable to shut out their fierce rivals Everton in midweek, but they did run away with the game with a 5-2 win.

And given their eight point lead at the top of the Premier League, Van Dijk is not too concerned about the few goals they may concede.

"It doesn't really matter but no one wants to concede goals even if you win the game," said Van Dijk to reporters.

"But I am not going to go to bed thinking 'Oh s**t' we conceded a goal. It is all about the team winning games.

"We want to win in the best way possible and obviously that is by not conceding but if we win it with conceding then everyone is still happy.

"We are in a good situation we can't deny that but we are not there yet. We never are satisfied, especially when the season is not even halfway.

"We want to keep going and focus on the games ahead of us. So from now we will recover from this and be happy and fully prepare for Bournemouth at the weekend."
