I’m Happy Says Van Dijk After Helping Liverpool Overcome Crystal Palace
Liverpool won their second consecutive match of the season, thanks to goals from James Milner – from the spot – and Sadio Mane.
The game was an enthralling encounter filled with a lot of decisive moments and excellent calls from the centre ref.
After 90 minutes of dramas and impressive attacking moves from both sides, the Reds emerged victorious to make it two wins in two matches.
Having helped the Reds to a famous victory in a stadium that has been a haunting place for Jurgen Klopp’s side, Liverpool defender Van Dijk revealed to reporters how happy he was seeing his side claimed the maximum points.
According to the former Southampton defender, it was a great feeling that the Reds picked three points in a stadium that has been a fortress for a very long time.
“It was very important to win here. We know how difficult it is to come here, so to win and keep a clean sheet as well, I’m a very happy man,” the No.4 told Liverpoolfc.com.
He revealed that his teammates knew they are up for a fight against the Eagles, who were wonderful throughout the night.
While analyzing the game, The Dutchman admitted that they need to work on their ball possession before their next match.
“I think we had very good moments but also moments that need to be better, especially in ball possession,” he admits.
Dijk and Gomez were resolute while defending during the game as they nullify Wilfred Zaha’s pace and quality throughout the encounter.
Since his move to the Anfield Stadium in January, the £75m-rated defender has brought grit and turgidity to the team’s back line.
