Despite scoring 46 goals in the Premier League this season Liverpool have struggled to cope defensively. For every two goals they have scored in the league this season they have conceded one at the other end (23 goals conceded). This has left their goal difference (23) fewer than second placed Manchester United (27) despite scoring more goals than the Red Devils this season.
Liverpool fans certainly believe that van Dijk could be the man to solve their defensive woes…
