Liverpool had an easy 4-0 victory after two goals in the first half by Diego Jota and one word Thiago Alcantara. Van Dijk added a fourth goal in the 52nd minute after finishing Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross. He also had a huge performance in the back.
Virgil van Dijk tore his ACL in his right knee last season. As a result, he made just eight appearances for Liverpool, including as a community shield last year. However, he has come back strong from injury and has returned to his best form in recent weeks.
The Liverpool captain looked unbeatable for most of the game and bullied Southampton’s attack for 90 minutes. The victory brought the Red Devils to second place in the table. Although most likely they will be on Tuesday before the weekend is over. Despite that, some Liverpool fans already believe their team will win the Premier League this season:
Liverpool hope to compete for all titles with a fit and fired Virgin Van Dijk
Chelsea have a slight advantage in depth in positions this season. However, both Liverpool and Manchester City have the quality to compete with them domestically.
Manchester City is a bit lacking in standout options. But Gabriel Jesus has been impressive lately and the quality of Ferran Torres is unquestionable. In addition, Bernardo Silva’s form means that the Sky Blues cannot be underestimated.
In contrast, Liverpool have the least depth of the three teams. Many experts have concluded that they were disqualified due to lack of options.
However, Virgil van Dijk with full fitness will easily become the best central defender in the world. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane opened fire on all posts while both Diego Jota and Roberto Firmino scored steadily.
The two Liverpool full-backs are still far from the best in England. Their midfield trio of Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho can compete with the best players in world football. They have a good balance between creativity and steel.
