Former Reds left-back Jim Beglin says that Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez can be the best central defensive partnership in the Premier League.
Beglin made the comment on Twitter after Gomez’s sensational display against Spain for England on Monday night.
If Joe Gomez continues playing to current standards, there won’t be a better central defensive @premierleague pairing than he and Virgil van Dijk.

It’s hard to argue with what the pundit says – both Van Dijk and Gomez have been exceptional all season long. Keep up those levels, and they will be considered world-class by even more pundits and rival fans, for sure.

Van Dijk, in particular, has helped young Gomez develop; it’s great to have centre-backs we can fully rely on at last.
