The match was shown live on Sky Sports, and their pundit Jamie Redknapp admitted his admiration for van Dijk, “Toby Alderweireld is the best central defender in the league, but Van Dijk is not far behind. Van Dijk is the ideal modern central defender. He would fit in with Barcelona or Real Madrid. He is good enough.”
