Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk says the “pain” of losing last season’s Champions League final is driving him and his team-mates as they prepare to face Tottenham today.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the 2018 showpiece.

Gareth Bale scored a stunner for the Spaniards, while keeper Loris Karius was at fault for two Real goals.

“I took a lot of experience from it; hopefully I can use that,” Dutchman Van Dijk told BBC Sport.

“Losing a final is painful.”

“Tottenham are a very good team and throughout they have a lot of strength.

“They have a fantastic goalkeeper, two great centre-backs and a midfield that’s been very good. They have Victor Wanyama, who I know from Southampton, and Christian Eriksen, who has been doing it for years.

“Up front, they have players who can make a difference, so we have to be ready.

“But I know they’ll definitely think the same about us. We’re not a nice team to face so it’s going to be difficult.”
