‘Nice to get an assist’ – Virgil van Dijk on linking up with Joel Matip for a goal and looking forward to the FA Cup final

Posted by

It’s not often that two centre-backs can link up in the box to score a goal but Virgil van Dijk was happy with his role in Joel Matip’s finish against Aston Villa.

Taking to his Twitter account after the game, the 30-year-old wrote: ‘Found a way! Nice to get an assist also. See you all at Wembley reds 😁’.

That’s all that the trip to Villa Park was about, getting the result we needed and then coming home to prepare for the FA Cup final.

Now we have our full focus on a second piece of silverware this season and it’s safe to say that our No.4 has been pivotal to our on-field success thus far.

The only problem for Jurgen Klopp’s side is that success is normally judged by silverware and we still have the chance of ending the campaign with only one cup.

Our final four games could end with three more notches on the Champions Wall though and it’s up to the lads to get the job done, starting at Wembley.
