Video: Virgil van Dijk nearly scores comical own goal in real heart-in-the-mouth moment for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s side have not been their usual selves this afternoon, and currently lead 1-0 at the time of writing.

Still, they nearly let that lead slip in bizarre fashion, as you can see in the video clip above.

Van Dijk for some reason got into a big muddle with goalkeeper Alisson and almost passed it straight past his own goalkeeper into the back of the net.

Luckily, it trickled just wide, but this was a heart-in-the-mouth moment for the home crowd!
