      For me he's the player of the season so far.

      He is just so so good! When I watch him play it is man protecting the ball from kids at times!

      This was Liverpool's 50th clean sheet in the Premier League under Jürgen Klopp in their 128th match with the German in charge since his first in October 2015; 42% of those have come since Virgil van Dijk's league debut in January 2018 (21 in 37 games since).

      Nope. Put it this way:

      2017 PL goals conceded: 45

      2018 PL goals conceded: 22

      Only 3 goals conceded against non top 6 sides so far this season. An offside goal against Burnley, a deflection against Cardiff and Alisson shoved off the ball against Leicester. Every other goal conceded has been for top 6 sides. There's only 3 such games remaining.

      VVD is the best defender in the league. We can win the title with him.

      plus Gomez emerged alongside TAA and Robertson getting even better.

      Nothing other than he had taken part in training mate, I suppose we won’t know until the line ups are announced. Since it’s illness rather than injury, I would imagine Klopp has left it up to VVD to decide whether he feels he is in the right condition to play.

      He's been ill.

      Klopp said he lost 4 kilo's while ill, which is a lot for a very fit footballer.
      It saps both strength and stamina.

      Said after Leicester mate - I think it’s been through the squad.

      His form through January was not as imperious as we’re used to either - which is only to be expected over a long season.

      Have a feeling we’ll see a big reaction this weekend.

      Yeah I think Klopp hinted at it in his presser.

      All players have blips anyway, same as all teams.
      I'm not worried.
