Virgil van Dijk issues defiant response to Liverpool critics after tough week

Virgil van Dijk intends to defy the critics bored with Liverpool ’s brilliance.

The Reds, 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League, need just four more wins to lift a first title in 30 years.

They also have every chance of overturning a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of their Champions League knockout stage tie against Atletico Madrid next Wednesday.

But they have been criticised after three defeats in their last four games – despite the fact they are without captain Jordan Henderson.

Crashing out of the FA Cup at Chelsea on Tuesday followed a 3-0 upset at Watford last Saturday in the Premier League. That reverse was only the second time in 28 games that Liverpool have dropped points in the top flight.

Van Dijk said: “In life there are people who are never satisfied. They are always looking for negative things. That’s the reality.

“Either you go on with that negative spirit or you just focus on the good things – and I’m definitely focusing on the good things.

“We are in a very good situation. Close to what we all hope to achieve. Let’s just go for it, enjoy it. Let’s focus on ‘just’ the Premier League, because it’s very small, huh?”
