Van Dijk was constantly being harassed by the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Wayne Rooney, Yannick Bolasie, and/or Gylfi Sigurdsson when he would go up to win headers in Liverpool's defensive third, but used his strength and clever body positioning to his advantage, sticking to his task well.

It was a similar situation [to the penalty against Liverpool for Everton last month]: the first one was no penalty in my opinion and this one wasn't also. "Exactly the same situation". After a flare-up on the touchline, Firmino reacted angrily to being pushed into an advertising hoarding and shouted something at Holgate. His anticipation an reading of the game always saw that he was in the right area to cut out Everton's attacks, and at the very least, cut down the angles enough to prevent them from getting shots off - he was hardly at fault for Sigurdsson's goal as the majority of Liverpool's players were caught too far up field after Everton had won possession following a corner kick.

Klopp sees Van Dijk as not just an imposing aerial barrier - he headed clear a dozen, if not more, booming goal kicks from Everton's Jordan Pickford - but as a vocal guide, an organizer, and a leader, something the club's defense has lacked since the retirement of Jamie Carragher in 2013.

Scoring the winning goal in front of the Kop in a Merseyside derby is as good of a first installment in a £75m repayment plan as one could muster.
