The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern were very impressed with their side’s performance against Southampton on Sunday. It has been a good few weeks for the Reds, and it got even better against the Saints.
In many ways, it was a complete performance from Jurgen Klopp’s team. They made a quick start, scored goals efficiently, and defended well against a Southampton attack that was often looking to pose a threat.
Indeed, following the game, a number of players have had a lot of compliments thrown their way, and that’s with good reason. Players including Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah looked very good in the attack, and they deserve all the plaudits that are coming their way.
However, perhaps the player that is generating the most excitement is defender Virgil van Dijk. He hasn’t been at his best since moving to Anfield, but he put in the sort of performance that fans had been expecting yesterday. Fantastic defensively with an eagerness to move the ball forward, his performance was exactly why Liverpool spent so much money on him.
Following the game, Liverpool fans have taken to the Liverpool fan Subreddit page to discuss his performance, and it’s fair to say that he’s a popular man at the moment. Lauding him as, among other things, a ‘unit’ in the defence, it’s clear that he’s found a way into the hearts of the Liverpool faithful already.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
