Virgil van Dijk can do the lot.

We're talking creating and scoring goals as well as keeping clean sheets on a consistent basis through his heroic defending.

The commanding defender is a physical specimen, standing a towering 6 ft 4 in. He's got an incredible engine for a man mountain, too.

Earlier in the season, van Dijk, who happened to be ill, outpaced 'the fastest player in the Premier League' Adama Traore.

And he continued to show off his pace and stamina over the weekend against Bournemouth.

In the 86th minute, Liverpool's No.4 went from defending a corner-kick to being in the opposition box in just 10 seconds.

van Dijk recorded another clean sheet on Saturday as Liverpool secured three-points against Bournemouth in a 3-0 victory.

He remains the talk of every pundit including Chris Sutton who hailed the 27-year-old as the best Dutchman to play in England's top flight.

A huge shout considering the Dutch talent that has blessed the Premier League over the years. From ex-Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy to Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp, among many, many others.

Former Reading and Fulham player Steve Sidwell couldn't believe what he was hearing, with him putting forward his choice: "Dennis Bergkamp all day long."

Meanwhile, van Dijk and co resume their 2018/19 campaign by venturing into the Champions League. Last season's finalist entertain Bayern Munich in a mouth-watering European fixture.

Then it's Manchester United at Old Trafford.
