Can you remember at the start of the season, when despite Arsenal getting completely dominated at Anfield in a 3-1 victory for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds – their fans would constantly talk about Nicolas Pepe getting a run on Virgil van Dijk – casually forgetting to mention he lost the ball five seconds later?
In truth, it shows how brilliant van Dijk is – but it seems their actual club rather than just some delusional fans have got on board with this being some kind of seminal moment!
Yesterday, they released a promo video for Adidas about football’s return, which features Ian Wright narrating over some inspirational clips. The former striker describes our Dutchman as ‘getting run ragged’ by Pepe – the £70m flop with four Premier League goals to his name to date.
It’s quite a motivational video, in truth, but this part didn’t half make us laugh!
