Liverpool are seriously in the contest for the English Premier League title against Man City and it is only 7 games left until the end of the season.

The Reds team are currently top in the Premier League table with two points ahead of their title rivals but the Citizens have got a game at hand.

It is important to note that Liverpool have not won a domestic title in their last 29 years and this remains an opportunity for them to break the deadlock, a development that makes it a tough job for manager Jurgen Klopp and his team.

However, Liverpool former player Luis Garcia is of the opinion that the foundation of the challenge for his former team and the player who can make it easier is Virgil Van Dijk.

The former Southampton central defender has been the key man in the Liverpool defence, helping to win a number of clean sheets so far this season and also to remain in the challenge.

Luis Garcia stated that Virgil Van Dijk has made it easy for the German boss and his presence in the team until the end of the season is most important because of his quality at the defence and the leadership traits he has got.
