Probably buoyed by the fact that Liverpool had just thrashed their nearest competitors for the Premier League title at the time, Reds defender Virgil van Dijk got firmly in the Christmas spirit with a gesture following the full-time whistle against Leicester City on Boxing Day.
Given the Foxes were in second and can be so dangerous at home – indeed they were unbeaten at the King Power Stadium since February – this looked to be a tough game on paper for the Merseyside outfit as they looked to maintain their own unbeaten start to the 2019/20 top flight campaign.

However, they dispatched Brendan Rodgers’ men with relative ease in a performance that was one of champions, surely pushing them a step closer to their first title of the Premier League era.
As per usual van Dijk was a rock at the back for the visitors, as they not only racked up four goals but also kept a clean sheet on their travels while keeping Jamie Vardy quiet in the process.

At the full-time whistle there were celebrations aplenty among the Liverpool players and supporters, but while this was all still going on, the Netherlands international took some time out to help one Leicester groundsman push his lawnmower across the turf, as you can see below.
A hilarious festive gesture from the 28-year-old, who is surely in contention to win successive PFA Player of the Year awards.
