Yet again, Van Dijk celebrated early when Salah was through on goal

Virgil van Dijk knows what happens when Mo Salah is one on one with the goalkeeper better than anybody!

Time and time again, the Dutchman has gone early with his celebration – but only when the Egyptian is the one about to score…

Have a look at this from a year ago against Manchester City – or this against Bournemouth earlier in the season.

In fairness, in under two full campaigns, Salah has scored 67 goals for Liverpool – so it’s perhaps not an especially enormous gamble by van Dijk to back our no.11 so heavily!
