Virgil van Dijk is the best defender in the world, I don’t really care if anyone argues with me about this one, and his latest performance against Sheffield United is yet another example of his class.
The Dutch international was solid at the back for the Reds, in a game that was made much more difficult than maybe it should have been by the Blades’ playing style.
They held back for much of the game, but were aggressive on the counter-attack, but van Dijk and big Joel Matip stood firm.
But it was a long-pass by Virg that caught the eye upon a second watch of the game, The Dutchman sents up Sadio Mane with an exquisite over-the-top ball, but the forward fluffed the chance.
