Virgil Van Dijk has urged Liverpool to ‘enjoy’ the Premier League title race after they returned to the top with a 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
Toby Alderweireld’s last-minute own goal handed Liverpool a crucial win at Anfield, after Lucas Moura had cancelled out Roberto Firmino’s first-half opener.
The win moves Liverpool back to the top, two points clear of second-placed Manchester City having played a game more, and despite the fortuitous nature of the victory Van Dijk admits the three points are all that matters.
“Tottenham are a very good side with great players who like to have the ball,’’ Van Dijk told BBC MOTD.
“We tried to put them under pressure which we did in the first half but in the second half they changed it up a bit. It was a bit difficult for us but in the end we got the three points and that’s all that matters.”
“When these moments come we never give up. We are going to try and win every game. It’s going to be tough but let’s enjoy it and keep going.”
