Virgil van Dijk was present at Anfield today, watching for the first time since his £75m move was confirmed.
But the Dutchman wasn’t impressed with what he immediately saw, with Liverpool conceding a very sloppy goal in the opening minutes.
The centre-back will be an automatic starter in our team, and it might be Joel Matip he replaces, with the Cameroonian at fault by losing possession.
We’re not sure who he’ll eventually partner, but the mistake proves how crucial it is that we get him in the side – and fast!
Maybe we’ll need another new centre-back in the summer, with Dejan Lovren equally error prone.
