One of the reason for Liverpool to be the leader of the Premier League by seven points to the second (Manchester City) and still have the best defense of the competition, with just eight goals conceded in a total of 20 matches, is certainly due to the excellent defender Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutch defender, after all, is the great name of the Red’s defense and has started and played in all of the 20 matches of Jürgen Klopp’s team this season in the Premier League.

That can make Van Dijk tired, right? The sequence, after all, is long and exhausting, especially in England, where they don’t even stop during the end of the year. However, the defender has ensured that he is not in need of a vacation.

I do not need to rest. Everyone wants to play all the games. You do not want to sit on the bench watching. I want to play. As long as I’m physically fit and with everything right, I want to continue playing,” said the defender, who still showed a lot of confidence in the sequence of the Reds.

After all, in a team with a lethal attack with the combination of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, who still have the help of the new boy Shaqiri and a talented midfield, the defense has also shone and attracted attention, and thanks especially to Van Dijk and the Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, even though he already had some bad moments. With all these important features, no wonder Liverpool are leading the Premier League with a good amount of points ahead.

Trust is definitely here, but that can change in just two games. We are not worried, we need to keep doing what we are doing. Of course, there will be difficulties, as always happens in life, but how reacting is important, and so far we are doing well. There are some things to improve, but we lead the Premier League and are on the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. We are doing well and we need to continue like that.” he said.

Liverpool’s next challenge is the extremely important match against Manchester City on Thursday (3rd) at Etihad Stadium. If they win, they will be closer and closer from the first Premier League title, and if they get it, Virgil van Dijk will probably go down in the history of the Reds.
