Virgil Van Dijk Casually Headed The Ball To Himself Then Made A No-Look Pass During Liverpool Vs Brighton

Virgil Van Dijk Casually Headed The Ball To Himself Then Made A No-Look Pass During Liverpool Vs Brighton

Virgil van Dijk headed the ball to himself vs Brighton and Hove Albion last night - proving he could probably play in defence on his own.

Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners at the AMEX Stadium last night and the Dutch defender turned in a trademark performance.

Brighton tested the Premier League champion's defence numerous times and one key moment saw van Dijk leave Aaron Connolly in the dust.

Van Dijk beat the Irishman in a footrace before brilliantly heading the ball into open space and latching onto it himself. He then flexed with a no-look pass, as you do.

Is there anything van Dijk won't try at this point?

Reds fans loved the bit skills on display and were quick to praise the Dutchman on social media.

Liverpool raced to a 2-0 lead inside ten minutes last night after goals from Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson.

Brighton didn't give up however and Leandro Trossard scored just before half time to give Graham Potter's side hope.

However, the second half saw Liverpool dominate and Salah netted his second of the game in the 76th minute to seal all three points.

Manager Jurgen Klopp discussed the victory and praised Brighton for their attacking approach.

"It was a difficult game against a good opponent, a deserved win," the German coach told Liverpool's official website.

"Job done, job well done in big parts of the game but not in all. That's how it is. I think we started really, really well, we finished really, really well, but in between we left the door a bit too wide open for Brighton.

"But only because Brighton was really good; they played really good football, took some risks in the formation. Some of them were really threatening counter-attacks so we had to block twice in the box. In the end, we conceded a goal.

"I said to my boys at half-time, 'It is a good game [for] both sides, but they deserved their goal' and in the end, we had to adjust a few things and make a few things better. We had a better chance to score more, that was the situation. We had to adjust a little bit in the positions of the wingers, but it is difficult."
