Virgil van Dijk has stood out yet again as one of Liverpool’s strongest players on the pitch following their 3-1 win over Arsenal.
The Reds made it look effortless as they fired three goals past Mikel Arteta’s side on Monday night. Despite falling behing to a goal from Alexandre Lacazette, the reigning Premier League champions hit back and then some as Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota were all on the scoresheet.
Is Virgil van Dijk the best defender Liverpool has ever had?
However, one man who has also impressed many Kopites is their Dutch powerhouse in the heart of the Liverpool defence.
A clip of Van Dijk making several audacious long-range passes to his team’s attack is doing the rounds on Twitter. Compilation account @CF_Comps has grabbed a lot of attention with their latest highlight video.
Loads of Kopites have flocked to the comments to laud their £72m-valued centre-back. One fan has described Van Dijk as ‘absolutely unreal’ whilst another thinks he is the ‘best player in the Premier League’.

It maybe slightly harsh on legends because football has changed , but VVD has to be the most complete CB in the history of the PL ? https://t.co/AVkYzRpIiY
