Man Utd Vs LIV: Virgil Van Dijk Is The Hero Of The Match

Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool's centre back, was the unsung hero of the Reds' 5-0 hammering of Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

When Mohammed Salah scored a hat trick against Manchester United, the UEFA men's player of the year 2018/19 had stopped Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford's attempts at goal on a number of occasions.

On a night when Manchester United's Harry Maguire was not at his best, Van Dijk and Konate worked together to ensure that Liverpool maintained their unbeaten record.

It was necessary for the 30-year-old Dutchman to come to Curtis' rescue as the latter came under severe attack from Ronaldo. Ronaldo was shown a yellow card by the referee as a result of the altercation.

What could have been a consoling goal for Manchester United was foiled by Virgil van Dijk, who denied Cristiano Ronaldo a final opportunity to score in the 92nd minute of the match.

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on this subject.
