Liverpool have had a great start to the season, winning their first six games in all competitions. However, with their early season form making a few of the fans a little bit giddy, Virgil van Dijk has taken to the Liverpool website to remind the fans not to get carried away just yet.

Since Virgil van Dijk came into the Liverpool side last year the Reds’ backline has looked different class. The commanding Dutchman has shown time and time again that he’s worth the huge fee that Jurgen Klopp forked out for him back in January and if he can contribute towards the club’s first ever Premier League title then the money spent on him will look like a small price to pay.
The defender will be keen to win his first piece oif silverware at Anfield but for now, he’s keen not to get his hopes up and to just be ready for the next game. For Liverpool, that next game is against van Dijk’s former club in Southampton before they go through a tough spell of fixtures against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Napoli and if they can come through those games unscathed we could be talking about the next Premier League champions.

That’s what we want to hear, ‘working hard and staying humble’ not the endless hype that might trip us up…
