Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has revealed his toughest opponent in the Premier League.

The Dutch international centre back disclosed the best opponent he has faced in a chat with British media outlet TalkSport.

According to him, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is the toughest opponent he has faced.

Virgil Van Dijk spoke about his most difficult opponent ahead of the blockbuster Premier League meeting between his team and Arsenal.

The former Groningen defender has been a big asset to Liverpool since joining the club from fellow Premier League side Southampton in January 2018.

Liverpool paid a then world-record fee of £75m to sign Van Dijk thus making him the most expensive defender in the history of world football until this month.

The record was broken by the £85m transfer of England international Harry Maguire from Leicester City to Manchester United.

Virgil Van Dijk was a key player for Liverpool who reached the Champions League final in his first season at the club.

Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final.

Van Dijk and Liverpool went one better in his second season after they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win the Champions League title.
