Virgil van Dijk

Virgil Van Dijk has been pointed out by a BBC pundit as Peter Schmeichel, the legendary goalkeeper of Denmark has told BBC Sport that Liverpool’s no. 4 was not good enough for Liverpool during the first-half of their Premier League clash with Manchester City.

The fixture between Manchester City and Liverpool ended in a draw with Liverpool still just 1 point behind the League Leaders.

Of course, Van Dijk has been one of the world’s best centre-back for some time. Some may have backed Van Dijk to thrive up against Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling. Van Dijk missed many matches of the last Premier League season due to an ACL injury. This season he came back after almost a year.

This season the 30-year-old has recovered fully and is giving his best to play for the team and win as many games as possible to be the champions of England again.

Schmeichel’s statement for Virgil Van Dijk

Liverpool look rattled in defense. Virgil Van Dijk should be a calming influence, but he is making mistakes. He has made three big mistakes; Alisson has had two kicks turn into chances for City,

he told BBC Sport

Liverpool Struggle

Last evening was a very good opportunity for the Reds to win and come out on top but Liverpool missed this brilliant chance to seize the initiative in the Premier League title race.

As Liverpool are still 1 point behind the champions they would want Man City to drop points in their further fixtures. Whereas, the title is to lose for City if Pep’s side continues winning all of their remaining fixture in the Premier League the defending champions will be once again crowned England’s king.

However,, there is still plenty to play for and both the teams have seven more games in the top flight. While the two-horse race continues in England, European nights await for both the sides.

Liverpool will face Benfica in their upcoming clash while the Citizens will lock horns with Atletico on Wednesday might.
