Erling Haaland Hoping To "Trick" Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk In Champions League Clash

Erling Haaland Hoping To "Trick" Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk In Champions League Clash

Red Bull Salzburg phenom Erling Haaland has Liverpool in his crosshairs and he believes he has a "trick" up his sleeve against Virgil van Dijk.

Haaland burst onto the scene in the summer during the Under-20 World Cup as he bagged NINE goals in a single match, and he's continued his goal scoring ways in the new season.

He scored a hat-trick on his Champions League debut - taking his tally to 17 for the season already.

Next up for Salzburg; a trip to Anfield to face the Champions League holders. The 19-year-old is tasked with facing Van Dijk and he's hoping to "trick" FIFA's 'The Best' defender and set him out of position when they meet on Wednesday.

"I don't think you can train to play against him, but you can train on things that can maybe trick him or set him out of position," he said.

"We all have to be at our best ever, every player, to have a chance against this team."
