(Video) – Watch Virgil van Dijk give Liverpool early lead with bullet header at Selhurst Park

Posted by

It’s taken Liverpool less than eight minutes to take the lead at Selhurst Park courtesy of a bullet header from Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutchman headed in from a superb Andy Robertson corner to put the Reds 1-0 up in South London.

He appeared to be unmarked and simply powered the ball home at the near post.

The goal from our No. 4 reflects the fast start that we’d made to the game and the header is the former Southampton man’s first goal since netting in the 4-0 win over the Saints back in November.

A win will take us to within nine points of league leaders Manchester City after they were held to a draw by Southampton yesterday – we will still have a game in hand on Pep Guardiola’s side after this game.

Of course, the game is far from over but what a start!
