The ex Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur forward named the team of the week once again. As per Garth Crooks, Virgil van Dijk is worth and Oscar due to this outstanding performance shown against Spurs in 15th September. Liverpool was leading as it successfully defeated Tottenham in 2-1 on Saturday at Wembley. The Dutch defender did put in his best performance to stop Harry Kane from achieving scores. The outcome made the Liverpool show its 100 percent in the season’s beginning.
Crooks did include the center-back of the Reds and said Harry Kane did not have a kick. He also added that Virgil van Dijk was too big, composed and strong on the ball. In such scenarios when center backs look commanding, strikers should start ruffling feathers and the captain of England was simply not ready for a scrap. If Harry and the team got between it and stuck their heads in defenders faces of Liverpool, then this was the day. Van Dijk started to walk on the pitch and looked like a celebrity movie star who walked away with an Oscar for being nominated for the best leading man.
There were 3 players from Manchester United who were also chosen by Crooks namely Chris Smalling, Marouane Fellaini and David De Gea. They were all a part following their victory over Watford.
