The Premier League was shook last night as Watford beat Liverpool 3-0 at Vicarage Road, after the Reds went on an unreal 18-game winning streak.
In truth – the Hornets were the better team on the night, and they thoroughly deserved their victory, but Virgil van Dijk has claimed it was a freak result.
The centre-half wasn’t happy in his post-match interview, but did explain that Liverpool will bounce back after the “unacceptable” battering.
The Reds are up against Chelsea in the FA Cup next – an opportunity to restore the smiles on fans’ faces.
Take a watch of the video below (via Sky Sports):
"We want to strike back straight away and we will." 💪
