The Dutchman confirmed that Mohamed Salah has picked up an injury following the challenge he received from Hamza Choudhury but he admitted should be fine.
“I think he should be not too bad,” van Dijk told Sky Sports.
“The good thing he has plenty of time to recover. He’ll probably get time to recover as well.
“So I’m not concerned that he’s not going to be ready for United away.”
The Egyptian has been one of the most important players at the club since his arrival in 2017 and with the Reds looking to set the Premier League record for consecutive wins in the league, Salah will be needed.
Liverpool have the chance to equal the record of 18 consecutive wins set by Manchester City in the 2017/18 season and they have the chance to do it at Old Trafford after the international break.
Their rivals will be desperate to do everything they can to prevent Liverpool from equalling the record and much like Everton in recent years, the success of their season now depends on ensuring Liverpool don’t achieve their goals.
