After limping off late in Saturday's FA Cup final win over Chelsea, Virgil van Dijk indicated that he is certain he has not sustained a major injury. The

Liverpool

midfielder played the entire 90 minutes but did not return for extra time, with Joel Matip filling in for the last 30 minutes.

Fans were alarmed at the sight of another important cog in the machine looking to pick up an injury, especially after seeing Mohamed Salah pull up after 32 minutes, but Van Dijk has done his best to calm those fears.

"Hopefully," he added after the game, "we're going to check it out. I felt a discomfort behind my knee in the first half when I raced, but I kept playing."

"In the end, I can't take any chances for the squad, so I have to trust Joel." Hopefully, everything will work out. I think Virgil is fine, but his muscle was hurt," manager Jurgen Klopp said after the game, according to

BBC Sport

.

On Tuesday, the Reds face Van Dijk's former club, Southampton, before finishing the season against Wolves on May 22. There's also the Champions League final, which takes place six days later versus

Real Madrid
