VAN DIJK IS ON RED ALERT FOR BELGRADE'S STARS.
Byline: DAVID ANDERSON
VIRGIL VAN DIJK knows Liverpool must be switched on when they face Red Star Belgrade tomorrow.
They nearly slipped up against winless Huddersfield despite Jurgen Klopp's warnings that the game was "a 100 per cent trap". Van Dijk (right) says the players know they must be fully focused against Red Star at Anfield as they look for the win to get their Champions League group campaign back on track.
The Serbian champions are unbeaten in their league and the Dutch centre-half said: "We need to respect the opponent. They are in the Champions League - the best competition in Europe apart from the Premier League - and it will be a hard game. We will need to be 100 per cent and I think we will be.
"Against Huddersfield, we should have done even better. We kept a clean sheet, which is good, but could have made it easier for ourselves. We need to win every game. There is no other mindset."
Sadio Mane, who missed the Huddersfield trip, made himself available after coming through a tough work-out in training.
The winger underwent surgery last week to sort out complications with a broken thumb and is likely to wear a lightweight cast for the tie.
