Why Virgil Van Dijk is better than Sergio Ramos

Twitter can be a strange place. In the past, it was a place to share opinions. Now the majority use it as a platform to ridicule them. Football Twitter has seeped into normal, everyday Twitter.

Liverpool may find themselves in many predicaments this summer but one that's been overlooked due to more pressing issues is the Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho conundrum.
