Soccer: Liverpool's Van Dijk primed for derby debut in cup


By Neil Robinson(Reuters) - Virgil van Dijk, the world's most expensive defender, could make his Liverpool debut against local rivals Everton at Anfield in Friday night's opening FA Cup third-round clash. All four previous Anfield derbies in the FA Cup, stretching back 116 years, have been drawn, most recently 1-1 in 2009 when Everton won the replay. VAR TECHNOLOGYFriday's other tie pits 2016 champions Manchester United against Derby County, who are second in the Championship, while neighbours City play Burnley on Saturday. Fleetwood, who are now managed by former Manchester City striker Uwe Rosler, have progressed in his absence and are now 12th in League One. Judge's horrific injury required two operations to heal and deprived the 29-year-old of the chance to appear at Euro 2016 and a likely Premier League move.
