Having waited seemingly since June for Liverpool to sign Virgil van Dijk, Jurgen Klopp fielded the £75m centre-back tonight for his debut in the Merseyside Derby.
And in the 84th minute, he rose above everyone else to nod home a winner in front of the Kop.

You literally cannot write stuff like that.
A beautiful moment and one we’ll remember as a defining moment of this and any season.
And watch his celebration… Thumping the badge and knee sliding. He’s been waiting for as long as us, Reds.
Banging the badge. Too bloody right. He’s arrived! pic.twitter.com/DMSCIeigg1
