Virgil van Dijk brutally trolls Man Utd fan over Liverpool's 7-0 win last season

Virgil van Dijk brutally trolls Man Utd fan over Liverpool's 7-0 win last season

Van Dijk had a brilliant response.

Virgil van Dijk has brutally trolled a Manchester United fan over Liverpool's 7-0 win against them last season.

The Reds produced one of the surprise results of last season, even taking into account United's poor recent away record against the top Premier League teams.

Liverpool were in the midst of a four-game unbeaten run without conceding in the league at the time, but had struggled to impress throughout 2023 to that point.

To say the result lifted their season wouldn't be fully correct, as they subsequently lost 1-0 at Bournemouth and went a further three games without a win, but it did remind every club in the division exactly what they were capable of at their very best.

United were well in the game inside the first 40 minutes, but Cody Gakpo put Liverpool ahead shortly before half-time.

And instead of forming a response, United simply crumbled in the second half. Gakpo, Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez all scored twice, and a calamitous day for Erik ten Hag's side was summed up when Luke Shaw's clearance smashed into Roberto Firmino in the box, allowing Salah to fire home for 6-0.

Over six months on from that clash, it is Liverpool who are in the stronger position in the league, winning five and drawing one of their first six matches.

United, meanwhile, are in ninth after three wins from six - and Van Dijk couldn't resist poking fun at one of their fans when recalling the infamous result.

The Dutchman recently appeared on Pro:Direct Soccer's YouTube channel for their 'Guess the Song' game, alongside presenter Harry Pinero - where he showcased some pretty decent singing skills.

At one stage in the contest, Van Dijk led United fan Pinero 7-6 in the scores - with the presenter attempting to buoy himself ahead of the next round.

He exclaimed: "7-6, let's go!", before Van Dijk brutally responded: "You like seven, no? Sorry."

Pinero said: "You lot call that shade? You like the seven, yeah? That was good, that was good. Well done."

"That was one of the worst days of my life and you were responsible for that."

"I tried my best," Van Dijk laughed.

Pinero and his fellow United fans will have to wait until December 16 to hope their side can avenge last season's loss at Anfield, having not won at the ground since 2015. On that day, Juan Mata scored twice - including a stunning bicycle kick in the second half.
