The last Premier League player to dribble past Virgil van Dijk

By now it’s pretty common knowledge that nobody has dribbled past Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk in the Premier League this season, so much so that it’s filled up the comment sections of our articles for a while now.

The big Dutchman has been in sensational form for Liverpool in their title charge, with the £75 million fee the Reds paid to secure his services from Southampton looking like a bargain fifteen months on.

And as noted by the Daily Mailyou actually have to go as far back as 3 March 2018 for the last time someone playing in the Premier League bypassed Van Dijk.

The player in question? Mikel Merino, who was playing for Newcastle at the time after signing for Borussia Dortmund. He now finds himself back in his native Spain with Real Sociedad.
