In the 3rd minute of tonight’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Sheffield United, superstar Virgil van Dijk launched a stunning long-range pass upfield.
The Dutchman’s pinpoint pass flew into the path of left-back Andy Robertson, the Scotsman was left with plenty of time to pick a pass after Sheffield United’s George Baldock slipped.
Robertson played a perfectly-weighted low cross into Mo Salah’s path and the Liverpool forward slotted the ball into the back of the net to give the Reds the lead.
Take a look at the Egyptian superstar’s opener below:

Baldock will be kicking himself after his costly slip, conceding such an early goal could be a massive blow to the Blades.
