Virgil van Dijk Played An Inch-Perfect Cross-Field Pass In The Build Up To Liverpool's Second Goal

We need to talk about Virgil van Dijk's pass in the build up to Liverpool's second goal against Burnley.

Van Dijk played a huge role in his side's second goal against Burnley on Saturday.

The Dutchman started Liverpool's attack, picking out Harvey Elliott with an inch-perfect cross-field pass.

He casually lofted a delightful long pass to the right wing, finding the 18-year-old with a scrumptious cross.

From there, Elliott brilliantly set up Trent Alexander-Arnold who pierced a stunning pass to Sadio Mane who did the rest.

The Senegalese drilled a low shot past Nick Pope to secure all three points at Anfield.

Fans, though, couldn't get enough of Van Dijk's sublime pass to Elliott, praising him on social media.

One wrote: "Virgil Van Dijk starts Liverpool's second goal, this is what we missed. WORLD CLASS."

A second tweeted: "All came from that pass from Van Dijk."

A third added: "Van Dijk's range of passing was also a big miss last season and there was part of me wondering if Liverpool would get that all important second goal."

While Liverpool didn't recruit massively in the summer, the return of the 30-year-old defender is crucial in their bid to compete for the Premier League title.
