Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate - Liverpool's centre-back depth is one of the best in Europe.

Van Dijk himself is the best defender in the world and asked to speak about the bond that he shares with his teammates, he told Liverpoolfc.com: "It’s quite special to have these boys around and also as partners around, full of quality.

"Different qualities, each and every one of us, but we complement each other very well.

"The relationship we all have together is also a very big thing; we really enjoy the hard work and we all want the same goal and that’s winning games.

"Whoever is playing, we support each other, in every single competition. That’s key to success, so hopefully, we can keep that going."

Van Dijk was back to his best last season after missing almost an entire season with an ACL tear. Hopefully, he can lead the defence on the way to more titles next season.
