‘Thank f*ck’ – Liverpool team for Chelsea confirmed, with these fans celebrating one thing in particular

Liverpool have confirmed their team to take on Chelsea in the Premier League’s late kick-off today, with Virgil van Dijk fit enough to start the game.

The Netherlands international went off in last weekend’s win over Southampton and was not certain to make it back for the game at Stamford Bridge today.

Given that Van Dijk is one of the best centre-backs in world football, it’s unsurprising that news of him being available to start the game is going down extremely well with Liverpool supporters.
