      The guys a monster.

      As an aside Henderson if picked better concentrate on that aspect of the game as there will be a fair few aerial bombs on Sunday.

       I think it might be a good idea to play Fabinho in midfield in case of Fellaini.

      He's f**king impressive to watch, I think even a totally clueless person would notice he's a level above the rest when watching LFC. My wife for example doesn't watch much football, but loves watching football live in the stadium, and when we watched LFC batter Porto in the Champions League last season, I remember she asking me "who's this new guy in the back? He looks like he's the boss of the rest of the defense". Haha. And yeah he does. I don't really care that much about captain armbands - it's just a piece of plastic - I care about leadership, and VVD is a natural leader... but in any case, I do think he'll become our captain eventually.

      I've been thinking about it and watching a couple of games here and there in the Bundesliga (mainly BVB) and a couple other ones in La Liga (mainly Barca) and though it might sound a bit bias or even overblown but I think we've got ourselves the best Center-Back in world football atm.

      He is just above anybody else playing that position at the moment. I was very impressed by a guy like Koulibaly, but Van Djik is just a complete player for the position. His game with the ball at his feet is so good I don't think he'd have any problem playing in midfield.

       But for me, it's mainly how much he makes everybody around him so much better. It's like having a second manager only for our backline.

      In the most stressful moments this year, the camera comes on to him and I almost feel relaxed. Like ''no worries Virgil is on it, he's setting up his backline, he looks totally in control''. And he delivers every time!

      He had a cold tonight and he was still superb and if anyone thought he may not be too quick then ask Traore .

      He has been the best player in the league this season. Godlike - pretty sure he could massage a storm into a summer breeze.

      Dominated defensively & then nipped up top for a goal.
      What a player.

      Best defender in the world, I’d wager to say he’s a top 10 player in the world regardless of position.
