Pep Guardiola was spotted looking at Virgil van Dijk admiringly during his post-match chat with the Liverpool defender prior to his presser duties.
The Dutch international was superb in the second-half of action alongside Joel Matip, with the latter playing a key role in preserving the 2-2 scoreline to hand the Reds a point from their visit to the Etihad.
As one of the top centre-halves in world football (arguably the top, as far as we’re concerned), one can only imagine how much of a delight it is to watch the 30-year-old ply his trade for the club on a daily basis, let alone for opposition managers at least twice a season.
