Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk has revealed that the Fulham fans made life difficult for the team in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup second leg seminal clash.
Recall that the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw but advance to the final on 3-2 aggregate after the first leg had ended 2-1.
Reacting after the game, Van Dijk told reporters that the atmosphere at Fulham made the Reds to fight more.
“[It sounds] very good. It feels a little bit familiar!
“Obviously we wanted to make sure we did the right things. Fulham played at home, brought the flags out and brought a good atmosphere, I think their manager said it was the biggest game of the season so far.
“We had to be ready to fight and I think we started the game very well, scored a good goal and created many chances to double the lead or triple the lead.
“But in the end, we find a way and we go to Wembley and I can’t wait to see all our fans there again.”
