Why Do Students Enjoy Psychology?

"I enjoy Psychology because the teaching is brilliant and the classes are enjoyable. Memory is my favourite topic because you learn about how the mind works and how memories are formed. I found this really interesting to learn about."

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk will miss the Netherlands' friendly with Belgium on Tuesday with a rib injury.

The Dutch Football Association said the centre-back, 27, is still suffering from the injury he sustained in Liverpool's Premier League win against Southampton on 22 September.

Van Dijk scored the opening goal as the Dutch beat Germany 3-0 on Saturday in the Nations League.

Reds forward Mohamed Salah left Egypt's squad on Saturday with a muscle strain.

Liverpool's next game is at Huddersfield on Saturday, 20 October.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita will have a scan when he returns to the club after being injured playing for Guinea.

Keita hurt his hamstring in Tuesday's 1-1 draw in Rwanda in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, reports Agence France Presse.

The 23-year-old has made 10 starts for the Reds since joining from RB Leipzig.

Keita is the fourth Reds player - along with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk - to be injured in the international break.
