Virgil van Dijk has given an optimistic response when asked about the injury which forced him off during Liverpool's FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp's side secured their second trophy of the season and remain in the hunt for a historic quadruple with another penalty shootout success over the Blues.

The latest clash between the sides saw a repeat of the Carabao Cup final in February, with neither side proving able to break the deadlock following 120 minutes of action.

Attention for Liverpool now turns to the final three matches of the season, with a three-point deficit to Manchester City to overcome with two Premier League fixtures remaining.

Chelsea could again count themselves somewhat unfortunate after ending up on the losing side of another penalty shootout defeat against Liverpool.

Both sides fashioned opportunities to win before penalties, and the Blues were then kept alive in the shootout when Edouard Mendy denied Senegal team-mate Sadio Mane from sealing the win.

Liverpool boss Klopp admitted he was nervous when watching the penalty shootout and sympathised with Chelsea after a second successive penalty shootout defeat to his side: "In the penalty shootout, it was nerve-racking, my nails are gone but I really feel for Chelsea - for the second time, 120 minutes and you get nothing, that's too hard. But for us I'm pretty happy."
