The international break is now officially over and Reds fans can look forward to seeing the team back in action this weekend.
Liverpool’s mammoth at the back Virgil Van Dijk has enjoyed his time away from the city. He has captained Holland to back-to-back wins moving his country closer to Euro 2020 qualification in the process.
The 27-year-old centre back has returned with high expectations for his teammates as he looks to continue Liverpool’s winning streak for as long as possible.
Liverpool have four Premier League games, two Champions League ties and a Carabao Cup third round match to contend with before the next international break. Virgil Van Dijk plans on winning them all.
Speaking to the Mirror, he said. “We want to keep going – and we want to win every game that is ahead of us now.
“There are seven games before the next international break. We want to win any match, and so seven wins is the target. That’s what we have to try and do.”
This is the rallying cry of a true leader demanding perfection from his teammates.
The international break is over and Van Dijk is determined to ensure Liverpool pick up where they left off.
Liverpool will look to continue their perfect start at home this weekend.
Newcastle United make the trip to Anfield on Saturday hoping to end Liverpool’s impressive start to the season.
