Watch the video below as the Reds defender heads in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner to give Jurgen Klopp’s men the early advantage after a fairly even start.
"It's the £70m man against the £80m man and the man who was actually cheapest came out on top."

Van Dijk does well to direct his header into the back of the net, but it’s yet another assist from right-back Alexander-Arnold, who whips in a fine corner to create the opportunity.
Man Utd will have a mountain to climb now as Liverpool don’t tend to lose too many leads these days…
