Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk believes his team Liverpool has earned Manchester City’s respect for Pep Guardiola on their performance score basis. But at the same time he said that he also believes that with this kind of performance the tournament tittle can not be won.
On Sunday, the result of the match between Liverpool and Manchester City in Enfield was 1-1 with a draw. Although the match did not reach the limit with good attacking performance as expected. The last four matches played between these two teams, both the sides had scored all total 18 goals.
Van Dijk said that it shows how the Reds made a threat to us in the match. This result can show us our standard of playing as well.
Virgil van Dijk shares his views:
As van Dijk told to Mirrors “I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the difficult games which we have against mid-table and lower teams.”
He said “we want to get as close as possible and do as well as we can, but we know it is going to be hard. We’ve had a great start to the season and we want to keep it going.”
“We aim to improve every game, even if it is against Chelsea, for example, and we want to win every game. After the international break there are three important games against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff so we want to be ready for that,” he concluded the statement.
