Liverpool

Van Dijk believes Reds can make history

17th April 2019, 11:58 by Bobbie Jackson

Virgil van Dijk believes Liverpool are capable of making history but has stressed the importance of focusing on their own game.

The Merseyside outfit potentially have eight games left to play this term as they look to win the Champions League and Premier League.

They hold a 2-0 advantage over Porto at the halfway stage of their quarter-final tie and are expected to complete the job in Portugal on Wednesday.

After suffering heartbreak in the Champions League final last season, they are keen to go one better this time around, while they currently lead the way in the Premier League, although Manchester City continue to apply pressure.

Van Dijk admits winning a double will be an extremely difficult task but has urged his teammates to forget about others and just focus on their own performances.

"It is going to be tough, but it is a great time to be a Liverpool player," Van Dijk told Liverpool's website.

"We have eight games left, fingers crossed, so we have to give it everything we have got. That's what we have to do now, just focus on ourselves, give it everything we have and see where it takes us.

"And if you think about it, what is eight games? You have to believe. You know, just go for it. We want to reach the final again because that is what we are all here for."
