Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has warned Chelsea they will be a much improved side from the team that lost 3-0 at Watford on Saturday.

Liverpool’s 44-match unbeaten run in the Premier League came to a shock end following the defeat at Watford.

“If you concede three goals – that’s something we didn’t do for quite a while – obviously we have to improve as a team in total, and we will,” Van Dijk told Sky Sports.

“It’s tough to take this one. I think the only positive is we have an FA Cup game [against Chelsea] in just a couple of days.

“In our last game, [we conceded] one set-piece, one good goal. Today [Saturday] it should be better, that is clear, but if you look at whole season we’ve been good defensively, I think we’ve the most clean sheets in the league.

“But we know there’s room for improvement. That’s the good thing about our mentality, we won’t walk away from this either, we have to improve, do better.

“It’s unacceptable that we lose here 3-0, in this way as well. The whole season we didn’t lose a game like this, I think they did very well, but we should’ve done better. We want to strike back, and we will.”
