Virgil van Dijk is so far ahead of every other central defender on the planet, it’s not even worth debating anymore. So we won’t.
But what we will do is highlight some of his brilliance from tonight’s 2-0 victory over Wolves.
Not only did van Dijk score and marshall us to another clean-sheet, but he won countless one-on-ones against Wolves’ spirited and pacy attackers.
One moment stood out in particular. Adama Traore, one of the Premier League’s speediest wingers, kicked the ball up the touchline and tried to take Virg on for pace, but picked a fight with the wrong guy.
Only van Dijk can look rapid, but completely composed, at the same time.
