The clip titled 'the difference' highlights the different approaches taken by Van Dijk and Terry during their in-game moments. 

The video shows the Liverpool star blocking a pass, forcing the attacker (Moussa Sissoko​) to shoot on his weak foot. 

However, the Chelsea legend takes a different method as he attempts to close down the forward who eventually picks out his teammate for a goal.

The footage of Van Dijk and Terry defending got fans talking online. 

One Twitter user wrote: "And Van Dijk defended it alone while Terry had someone with him."​

A second tweeted: "Already Terry's posture puts him in an awkward position. Just see the difference between the way Van Dijk runs back and Terry's."​

A third added: "The video is about the two defender's positioning. Van Dijk blocks the passing lane off to Son and forces Sissoko to hurry his shot."

​Van Dijk is regarded as one of the best centre-backs in Premier League history following his performances for Liverpool, not to mention his showing at Southampton

​And when naming the greatest centre-backs of the Premier League era, he mentioned Terry - but named Rio Ferdinand as the best. 

He opted for Ferdinand, Vincent Kompany, Jaap Stam, Terry and Sami Hyypia.
