Virgil van Dijk caught the eyes of a few Liverpool fans with one particular defensive contribution in the Reds’ 3-3 draw against Brentford.
During extra-time, Thomas Frank’s men threatened to steal all three points at the Brentford Community Stadium with a dangerous lofted ball over the Merseysiders’ high backline.
The Dutch centre-half demonstrated his sheer pace with a gut-busting recovery run to deny Ivan Toney a potential one-on-one with No.1 Alisson Becker.
