Liverpool defense has become much safer since the arrival of Virgil Van Dijk in 2018.
With Netherlands international, Merseyside club reached to Champions League final last season, and are in quarterfinals this season.
Van Dijk scored one of the decisive goals during the second leg against Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena.
In Premier League, Liverpool have the best defensive results, as Jurgen Klopp’s team is battling for the title.
According to the statistics, in 41 matches of this season not a single player has managed to dribble past Van Dijk, which just shows his massive impact on the team and on forwards of the opponents.
