It’s taken Liverpool less than eight minutes to take the lead at Selhurst Park courtesy of a bullet header from Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutchman headed in from a superb Andy Robertson corner to put the Reds 1-0 up in South London.

He appeared to be unmarked and simply powered the ball home at the near post.

The goal from our No. 4 reflects the fast start that we’d made to the game and the header is the former Southampton man’s first goal since netting in the 4-0 win over the Saints back in November.

A win will take us to within nine points of league leaders Manchester City after they were held to a draw by Southampton yesterday – we will still have a game in hand on Pep Guardiola’s side after this game.

Of course, the game is far from over but what a start!
