“Liverpool Will Use Experience To Win Premier League” – Van Dijk
Liverpool Van Dijk :
Virgil van Dijk has no regrets concerning how last season’s Premier League title race panned out as he believes Liverpool learned enough from the experience for it to form a difference second time around.
Despite holding, albeit for simply 24 hours, a 10-point lead last december and taking 31 points from a possible 33 in their final 11 matches of the campaign, the Reds lost out on a first championship since 1990 by one extra point Manchester city discomposed off 14 sequent victories throughout the run-in.
Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over city at Anfield on Sunday detached a nine-point advantage over the champions, who have dropped to fourth, and eight over Leicester and Chelsea.
Van Dijk Said ;
“We took a lot of experience last year. Good things, but also some things we should have done better,” Van Dijk said.
“We did everything possible. We shouldn’t have any regrets from last year.
“They (City) were just outstanding. We kept pushing them and they kept pushing us and you have to respect that, I certainly do.
“This year is a new chance for more teams, for both of us and the only focus is the game ahead of us.
“We have so many difficult periods of games with so many competitions, travelling and hopefully no injuries, no illness, so anything can happen.
“Hopefully we can only make sure we react better and do better. You need to have that bit of luck as well throughout the whole season so at the moment we are very happy in the situation.”
