Liverpool

Van Dijk hoping for more goals

2nd March 2019, 09:43 by Tom Hill

Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk claims he can add more goals to his game despite scoring two in midweek against Watford.

The Dutchman has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season and he has helped the Reds reach the summit with 10 games to go.

He has scored three league goals, with two of them coming in three minutes during Wednesday's 5-0 win at Anfield.

Van Dijk has now got four goals in 56 appearances for the Reds but the former Southampton man insists he should be doing more from set pieces.

"For myself, personally, to get two goals was great but I'm more satisfied with the clean sheet because if you are 2-0 up at the break sometimes you can get sloppy in the second half and I thought we were focused," he said.

"Most of the time with set-pieces I'm always marked by the opponent's best header.

"It is something I am aware that I need to improve. I am working on it, trying to get better with it, and the only way to improve is to train and work."
