Antonio Conte admits Chelsea wanted now-Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool beat Chelsea to Virgil van Dijk signing Antonio Conte confirms

Just over a month on from 'Pizjuanbul', Van Dijk's move was confirmed and his arrival has inspired more confidence in Liverpool's defence than there has been since Jamie Carragher's retirement.

Chelsea host Arsenal in the first-leg of their League Cup semi-final on Wednesday and Eden Hazard is expected to start for the Blues.

David Attenborough will be loving Philippe Coutinho's transfer to Barcelona as it's established a clear food chain of European football.

"I think it's difficult to prepare this game because [the last time] we played for a place in the top four", he added. "It was thoroughly deserved, it felt amazing to be out there, the goal is very special for me and my family". Of course, we saw some other matches, but after these two matches we were convinced that we should take the opportunity to sign him for Groningen.

And if perfect pictorial evidence was needed to sum up this ideal gift to our squad, there he was stood in front of a Christmas tree holding up a red Liverpool shirt. Maybe they do neither and instead strengthen other areas of the team, or perhaps they end up doing nothing until the summer.

Lallana doesn't play when they're all fit even. Coutinho is a great player.

In midfield, however, it's a different story.

Former World Cup winner and Juventus maestro Andrea Pirlo believes that Barcelona will get their money's worth out of their new signing.


In the same area where Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin won a controversial penalty in last month's 1-1 draw after Dejan Lovren laid a hand on him, referee Madley had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and Milner fired straight down the middle.

Liverpool stand to pocket a staggering £142 million from the Coutinho move and the club is keen to re-invest in yet another problem position. If the second part also pays off, Klopp's patience will be vindicated.

Liverpool have already broken the bank in a bid to fix the issues at centre-half, with Virgil van Dijk arriving for a whopping £75 million.

Rush and Souness were Liverpool legends but Coutinho, much as he was loved by many, can't really be called that.

"Then he thinks he is better than he is".

Asked of the chanting aimed at Pellegrino, he responded: "It's important that we all stick together".

But Gullit, who worked with Van Dijk as Holland assistant coach, says the defender can let his ego get him in trouble. Sometimes you think, because you're long in the business, that you know what could happen. Clubs can do whatever they can afford to do, and the rich are getting richer.
