After it was announced recently that Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren sustained an injury, we discussed how Liverpool would cope over the next few weeks with such a depleted defence.
The Reds only had one recognised centre-back last weekend, fortunately it was Virgil van Dijk, who many believe to be the best defender in the world currently. The Dutchman played alongside midfielder Fabinho in defence against Brighton, and they were even able to earn a clean sheet.
With that in mind, we asked you whether van Dijk can carry Liverpool’s defence during this tricky period, and these were the results:
Such is the Liverpool fans’ admiration of van Dijk that a staggering 83% think that the 6ft 4 centre-back will be able to carry the Liverpool team, and indeed defence, whilst they wait for the return of Lovren and Joe Gomez. They managed against Brighton, and the next step is Crystal Palace next weekend.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
