Is Van Dijk the Premier League's best-ever centre-back?

Is Van Dijk the Premier League's best-ever centre-back?

Has a Liverpool player ever received as much endless praise over a sustained period than Virgil van Dijk? The Dutchman has been an almost godlike figure at Anfield from the moment he arrived in January 2018, powering home a header in front of the Kop on his debut, against Everton no less. Since then, Van Dijk has transformed a leaky defence that used to concede comical goals into one of Europe's most solid back-lines. With the 28-year-old in the team, …

Virgil van Dijk - The Game Changer

Virgil van Dijk - The Game Changer

I have to start the article with a disclaimer - English is not my native language and I fear my vocabulary will fail me in describing just how amazing Virgil van Dijk is. It is a task even Shakespeare might have found impossible if he had to create a sonnet about Liverpool's number four. The Dutchman was voted UEFA men's player (also defender) of the 2018/19 season and PFA player of the year after leading the Reds to number six …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Sweep Burnley Aside

An exceedingly comfortable 3-0 victory against the most abhorrent club in the Premier League. They tried their usual dirty, boring tactics but were made to look like a bunch of part-timers by the Europeans Champions. A thoroughly satisfying win as we head into the international break. Adrian: 6 Had very little to do. Easy game for the Spaniard.  Trent: 7 Created the Wood own-goal and dealt with what little attacking intent Burnley showed down his side throughout the game.  Matip: …
Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

We're four years into Joel Matip's Liverpool career and only now are we getting to see him finally fulfil his potential. He arrived during the summer of 2016 and immediately had fans on his side purely by not being Martin Skrtel. For years prior, the Slovakian had been one of the mainstays in a leaky backline for the Reds. Matip was not just seen as an upgrade but as a better fit in general. His first thought wasn't to retreat …

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds scrap to St. Mary's win

Given the circumstances, Liverpool came away from a potential banana-skin at St. Mary's with a superb three points, after beating Southampton 2-1, thanks to goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. The Reds were dominated for large periods of the first half, but went into the break with Mané's stunning curler putting them in front. Firmino doubled the lead, before an Adrian howler sent the nerves jangling a little bit. But in the end, two and a half days after …

Virgil van Dijk delights in Liverpool's UEFA Super Cup victory

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk hopes that The Reds can continue the habit of winning silverware after they added another European trophy to the Champions League title they won in June.

Why Liverpool are right to sell Dejan Lovren

Why Liverpool are right to sell Dejan Lovren

After five years of being one of the most divisive players in Liverpool's history, the end appears to be nigh for Dejan Lovren at Anfield. If (trustworthy) rumours are to be believed,  the 30-year-old is on the verge of completing a move to Roma, having accepted that being fourth choice centre-back is going to be no barrel of laughs. The first thing to say is that Lovren deserves credit for actually wanting to go out and prove himself elsewhere, rather …
