Liverpool In Team Of The Week (12/2/18)

Liverpool In Team Of The Week (12/2/18)

Liverpool are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with Southampton.

Actually Garth is now down as a 'Football Analyst' these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performances by Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah in the two nil victory over Southampton at the weekend at St Mary's Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we'll also not argue with it, selected the duo as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

van Dijk:

'It has not been an easy baptism for Virgil van Dijk, but he is going to be a big hit at Liverpool, I have no doubt. To go back to your old club and provide such an assured performance as he did against Southampton speaks volumes about the mental capacity of this accomplished defender.'

Salah:

'There is just no stopping Mo Salah at the moment. He made Liverpool's first goal against Southampton and scored the second, and that was before half-time. He looks imperious in that Liverpool strip. I've seen Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish and John Barnes generate extraordinary hysteria at Anfield and it looks like Salah is in that class. I'm not sure who is enjoying his performances more, the player or the Liverpool fans.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to both for their recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

May Ryan (Brighton), Pablo Zabaleta (West Ham United), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur), Jose Izquierdo (Brighton), Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton), Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City), Marko Arnautovic (West Ham United), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool).
