Virgil van Dijk sets impressive new Premier League record


Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk set an impressive new Premier League record after the win over West Ham United on Saturday evening.

The Dutch defender helped the Reds secure a 1-0 win over the Hammers at Anfield, which kept the side three points behind league leaders Manchester City.

In doing so, Van Dijk has now played 60 league games at Anfield and has not suffered a single defeat which is a new top-flight record.

The record consists of an impressive 58 victories and only two draws since 2018.

The previous record was held by former Manchester United winger Lee Shapre, who reached 59 matches without a defeat at Old Trafford.

Jurgen Klopp's men will now turn their attention to their upcoming UEFA Champions League last 16 against Inter Milan, where they hold a two-goal advantage going into the second leg this week.
