Despite the hostile reception from the home support, Virgil van Dijk dealt considerably well with his awkward return to St Mary’s Stadium, from the perspective of Jurgen Klopp.
The substantial fixture occurs to have presented the ex-Saints man with his first clean sheet since his debut at Liverpool. The 2-0 victory saw Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah marking their respective names on the scoresheet.
Subsequently, the Reds acquired the third position in the league table, just two points below their arch-rivals Manchester United.
The winter-signing was expectedly booed by a section of the home crowd in the wake of his £75m-rated departure to Anfield.
Nevertheless, the Dutchman produced a classy performance in the 2-0 away victory, keeping the centre checked as the Reds’ defensive line enjoyed a clean sheet last night.
Posterior to the final whistle, the 26-year-old was subjected to an interview by LFC TV, which appears to have caught attention over social media.
The interviewer notified the talented defender that United had lost 1-0 to Newcastle earlier in the day, to which the Dutch international hilariously replied: “Ooh, unlucky!”
Probably owing to the notable relentless usage of the catchphrase ‘unlucky’ by Lucas Leiva, the Liverpool fanatics went crazy over Van Dijk’s response.
