Liverpool’s senior stars may have been absent from Tuesday night’s FA Cup heroics but some of the club’s leading lights are still finding time to bond during the Premier League’s inaugural winter break.
The Reds are currently enjoying their holidays after manager Jurgen Klopp granted the Premier League leaders some much needed time to recover and charge the batteries.
Klopp previously stated that he would prefer players go to locations in groups with a number of the club’s coaches assigned to overlook and assist training preparations for the players.
With the club currently 22 points clear at the Premier League summit, spirts are undoubtedly likely to be high. Liverpool’s defensive duo Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson engaged in some friendly social media banter after the big Dutchman teased his club teammate with a hilarious ‘nice pose’ reply after the Scotsman shared an image of himself pictured at the iconic St Andrews golf course.

The Ballon d’Or replied with ‘Nice pose Andrew’, with Van Dijk’s Twitter message also accompanied by a hilarious gif of Spiderman.
The bond and camaraderie that exists between the players is all but evident for everyone to see. Klopp has harnessed a special bond across the Liverpool camp and it is reflected in the team’s unity on and off the pitch.
Jurgen Klopp’s champions-elect have now claimed 100 points from a possible 102 in the past 11 months with the Reds conceding just two points since March. Their 22-point lead at the top of the league table is the biggest advantage any league-leader has ever had at the end of a day in English top-flight history
The runaway league leaders also made it 16 consecutive league victories with Klopp’s team now just seven wins away from claiming their first domestic title since 1990.
Both Van Dijk and Robertson remain ever-present figures for the runaway league leaders season. The pair have already claimed three trophies in just under a year and are still on course to complete the European and domestic treble.
Neither player is yet to miss a PL match this season with the Reds firmly on course to record their first league title in 30 years.
