2.- Virgil van Dijk

There is nobody who questions that Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk is arguably the best transfer of the Premier League this season, manager Jurgen Klopp has been justifying the €80 million that Liverpool paid for this player throughout the whole season and Van Dijk knows how important he is to the squad.

The biggest reason that Liverpool is currently at the top of the table is because of Virgil’s heroics in crucial matches, he saves the squad in matches where the Reds failed to perform well last season and they can actually fight to win the titles now that they have such a world-class defender on their ranks.
