Anfield Watch

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has revealed how close he has come to nearly taking free-kick duties off of Trent Alexander-Arnold this season.

The Dutch defender has a set of world-class attributes and we've also seen from footage in training that he can take pretty decent free-kicks too.

Anfield Watch Verdict

Liverpool are fortunate to have a number of top free-kick takers.

Alexander-Arnold is obviously the standout but Van Dijk could be handy from them, too, whilst Mohamed Salah would always fancy his chances from a dead ball.

There's top quality in the squad up and down the pitch.
