Virgil van Dijk didn’t mince words about Liverpool’s recent 2-2 draw against Manchester United, expressing that the outcome felt more like a defeat, especially after Jarrell Quansah’s costly mistake.

In a highly contested match, Liverpool’s dominance in terms of shots failed to translate into a decisive victory. Luis Diaz initially gave them the lead, but Bruno Fernandes seized on Quansah’s error to net a spectacular equalizer from the center circle.

Despite Kobbie Mainoo’s unexpected strike propelling United ahead, Mohamed Salah’s late penalty salvaged a point for the Reds. However, van Dijk was visibly disappointed with the result.

Looking at the bigger picture, Liverpool’s pursuit of the Premier League title remains intense, with this draw leaving them neck and neck with Arsenal at the top, only separated by goal difference. Nevertheless, van Dijk believes that dropping points in such matches is unacceptable.

Speaking to BBC MOTD, van Dijk lamented the team’s missed opportunities and emphasized the need to capitalize on chances in football.

Addressing Quansah’s error, he emphasized that mistakes are part of the game and expressed confidence that the young player will learn from it.

Looking ahead, Liverpool faces Atalanta in the Europa League quarter-final, followed by a Premier League encounter against Crystal Palace. Despite the setback, van Dijk and his teammates remain focused on their campaign across multiple competitions.
