You’d be hardpressed to find a more popular man at Liverpool right now than Virgil van Dijk. Since the Dutch defender moved to Anfield last year, he’s seen his already-impressive reputation improve ten-fold.
Now, there’s no denying that he’s amongst the best defenders in Europe, and he’s been a key reason why Liverpool have improved so drastically over the last 12 months.
He’s strong in the air, he’s great with the ball at his feet, and he’s become a player that is almost impossible to dribble past. Combined, that’s made the Liverpool defence almost impenetrable, especially given the fantastic players that are around him every week.
50 games, 24 clean sheets, 33 wins.
