Virgil van Dijk will feel somewhat aggrieved that his intervention on Aleksandar Mitrovic resulted in a penalty for the hosts after minimal contact on the Fulham striker.
Still, it has to be said that the contact does exist in what can only be described as a rare lapse of judgement from the Dutchman.
It certainly makes little sense why the No.4 chose to roll the dice with Trent Alexander-Arnold covering, though we’re sure we won’t see it’s like from a player who has been nothing but consistent throughout his Liverpool career.
