Liverpool star Van Dijk reacts to his team's loss to Man City at Anfield

The 23-year-old failed to create any chance but managed just one shot on target during his time on the pitch.

And he looked frustrated and sad after he was been taken off for Fernandes and he made his way over before giving Solskjaer a half-hearted handshake

BBC Sport commentator Jermaine Jenas tried to explain what went wrong at half-time.

"It's a bit better from Donny van de Beek but it still feels like everything is taking a bit too long.
"You have to be careful not to try and think Van de Beek can do what Bruno Fernandes can do. He's his own type of player.
"I think Van de Beek is still working out of what he is for Manchester United. I'd still like him to want the ball a bit more.
"Maybe have a shot instead of passing it back or passing it sideway. This United do not look for him, which is a bit of an issue."
