Van Dijk hails Liverpool’s fearsome front three

Liverpool centre-back Virgil Van Dijk has hailed his sides superb attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Saido Mane.

The Dutch international became the Anfield club’s record signing when he joined the Reds from Southampton January.

Van Dijk has immediately taken on a leadership role in Jurgen Klopp’s backline with many crediting Liverpool’s recent improvement in defence to the 26-year-old.

Speaking in an interview with the Telegraph he paid tribute to his sides lethal attacking triumphant and also hailed the work ethic they bring to the team.

“They’re so clinical,” Van Dijk said.

“You don’t need to give them a chance, because they are so lively, so sharp in front of the goal. With giving assists to each other, no one is selfish, everyone wants to do it for each other.

“The work they put in up front as well is phenomenal. It’s getting a bit under the radar – the work they do defensively. Obviously the goals have been unbelievable, but if you see them working for all of us that helps a lot.”

“It’s a nightmare to play against those three. If you’re a ball-playing centre-back who wants to have the ball, you know those three are going to keep pressing you, not once, twice, but for the whole game. You don’t want to come up against those three.”
