Virgil van Dijk was faultless again yesterday, helping Liverpool collect another Premier League clean-sheet, which aided our victory over Fulham at Anfield.
In total in the top flight this term, we’ve conceded just five goals – a pretty outstanding record – all things considered.
But van Dijk doesn’t just benefit us defensively, as this particular moment proves.
In the buildup to Mo Salah’s breakaway effort, van Dijk hollered at Alisson to play the ball quickly out to Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.
You can see in the clip below how our Dutchman simply demanded the Brazilian play the pass fast – and seconds later, Salah was rolling the ball into the back of Fulham’s net for his eighth of the campaign.

Top 3 Van Dijk things today:
– Make a crucial interception after Alisson parried the ball in the area
– Told Alisson to quickly take the FK which led to the Salah goal
– Kept the ball alive in the build up to the 3rd
Could do this every week for VvD
