Former Manchester City forward Rodney Marsh is following the match, and he is loving the performance of the Netherlands international central defender.

You can see his tweet below.

Van Dijk is one of the best central defenders on the planet and has been superb for Liverpool so far this season.

Yes, the Dutchman had trouble against Ivan Toney and Brentford, but all world-class defenders have bad games.

Liverpool really missed the former Celtic star last season.

And now that Van Dijk is back, the Anfield faithful can certainly expect the team to challenge for the Premier League title until the final day of the season.

Against Watford in the first half, Van Dijk played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 87%, won one header, and took 55 touches.

Liverpool are a force to be reckoned with, especially with the classy Van Dijk in the team.
