Unbelievable hair do.
Fits right in.
What? How was he?He was at fault for the goal they conceded against Everton too.
100% record so far.
Just as well Klopp protected him against City.
Check his positioning.What? How was he?
What did he say about it?Perfect looking forward to hearing Carragher on it.
They need defenders who know how to defend. Spraying passes is the easy part.He was excellent in the build-up of Liverpools attacks, you can clearly see what they bought him for. But those clearences before and to the goal... woeful.
Klopp shattered the old record by 50%, too!Most expensive defender in the world.
Let that sink in..
Didn't slice it. Just jumped too early, and had to bow his head in order to be able to make any contact with the ball. Terrible timing, but once he'd committed that was the only contact he could make unless he tried to chest it down.In all seriousness, terrible defending for that set piece. I mean, why would you head the ball down and right into the danger area when defending a corner - it didn't look like a slice either - from that clip.
Aye I've seen a better reply there.Didn't slice it. Just jumped too early, and had to bow his head in order to be able to make any contact with the ball. Terrible timing, but once he'd committed that was the only contact he could make unless he tried to chest it down.
Agreed wholeheartedly. Klopp has heaped enormous pressure on him when he insisted it was 'van Dijk or nobody' in the transfer market. Liverpool fans spent the last six months firmly believing that as soon as he'd join, he'd sort out their defensive frailties. That belief is very much misplaced. The problem at Liverpool is their system (and inability to defend set-pieces) and most defenders in the league would struggle to impress under Klopp's setup. Lovren looked very good under Pochettino - an excellent defensive coach - but absolutely haphazard under Klopp's 'guidance'. I expect a similar outcome in the case of van Dijk.He's not particularly great at defending and that's been obvious since he moved here from Scotland.
But he's good on the ball and it was decided he was good, therefore the regular errors leading to goals in a Southampton shirt were conveniently swept aside.
He'll get found out at Liverpool.
