Virgil van Dijk Celebrated Mohamed Salah's Goal Before Penalty Was Struck, He Never Had A Doubt
| Last updated
Virgil van Dijk brilliantly celebrated Mohamed Salah's goal before he struck his penalty during Liverpool's win over Brighton.
Salah doubled his side's lead from the spot following Luis Diaz's brave header in the 19th minute.
The visitors were awarded a spot-kick after Yves Bissouma handled Naby Keita's shot inside the box.
And Salah made no mistake from 12-yards, smashing down the middle - with Van Dijk nonchalantly celebrating the goal before the penalty was even hit.
