One thing we love most about this Jurgen Klopp team is the cohesion between the players, and this endearing tradition between Virgil van Dijk and Mo Salah is yet another example of this.
Pictures on Twitter have been shared by @Football_Tweet and they show our No.4 lifting his arms in celebration on several occasions before the Egyptian King has even put the ball in the back of the net:

It’s testament to the centre-half’s confidence in our No.11 that he sees fit to lift his arms in jubilation before the ball even goes past the soon-to-be-beaten ‘keeper.
The bond between two of the best players in this star-studded squad is clear, particularly given our No.4’s Tweet last night:
Different. Class. 😁 pic.twitter.com/mZJqN0XZl8

Hopefully, there will be many more examples of these celebrations in the games and years to come – the longer we can have these mercurial talents as our heroes, the better!
