Liverpool snatch £75m Van Dijk from Man City as Kompany injured again


Liverpool will be pleased their £75 million coup of Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk does the double job of securing themselves one of the Premier League’s best defenders, and denies Manchester City a key target. Not being able to sign the Southampton star is a blow to Pep Guardiola who watched as Vincent Kompany limped off in the 11th minute of City’s 1-0 win at Newcastle. With John Stones already injured since November, Fernandinho moved into defence alongside Nicolas Otamendi. Will their defensive crisis be enough to derail the Premier League leaders’ title charge?
