(Video) – Van Dijk schools Sissoko by shutting him down in 2 vs 1 counter

Posted by

With 84 minutes on the clock, and the scoreline at 1-1, Spurs found a way out of their own half to launch a counter attack.

With the ball eventually fed out to Moussa Sissoko, and Son Heung-Min joining him, it was up to Virgil van Dijk to put a stop to it.

Rather than panic and follow Son, Van Dijk kept them both at bay by peeling off the South Korean and putting Sissoko under pressure before eventually seeing off the threat.

It was a pivotal moment that allowed us to go on and win the game (eventually) – every game the Dutchman plays puts paid to whispers he is the best defender in the world at the moment.
