Virgil van Dijk forced off following clash of heads during Liverpool friendly in Salzburg

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk was forced off with a nasty head injury in the friendly match against Salzburg. 

Van Dijk suffered a cut above his eye when he caught by an opponent as he went up for a header in the second-half. 

The Dutchman left the pitch holding a pad to stem the blood from the cut just above his right eye.  

 Van Dijk was replaced by centre-half Nat Phillips.

The Reds will hope that the injury is not serious so he will be available to face Arsenal in the Community Shield on Saturday. 

Liverpool were losing 2-0 when Van Dijk went off in the 55th minute. 

But substitute Rhian Brewster scored twice in the 72nd and 81st minutes to secure a draw for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
