Virgil van Dijk made a rare error as Liverpool lost 2-1 to Arsenal at the Emirates in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
It was a shock result, but mistakes by both the centre-half and goalkeeper Alisson purely gifted the Gunners two ideal chances to capitalise.
The Reds went in 2-1 down at half-time after taking the lead through Sadio Mane – and van Dijk is aware of the error he made and owned up to it in a post-match interview.
The Dutchman said that team how what they “deserve” after an uninspired defensive performance.
Head up, Virg – we lift the title at Anfield next week!
