Van Dijk crowned PFA Player of the Month, fans react

Loads of Liverpool fans have been heaping praise on Virgil van Dijk, as the Dutch international was named the PFA Player of the Month for November.

Liverpool continued to keep pace with Manchester City on Sunday, as the Reds left it late to beat Everton 1-0.

The dramatic late win was the seventeenth clean sheet the Reds have kept since van Dijk’s debut for the club, and the 27 year-old is the first centre back to win the award since 2013.

Van Dijk, who wore the armband for the Merseyside derby with Jordan Henderson suspended, played three Premier League matches in November, conceding just one goal.

He could have scored a hat trick in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal, and his organisation and leadership at the back was crucial to the wins over Fulham and Watford.

Defenders very rarely win these awards, and this could be the perfect boost of confidence the Dutchman needs heading into the busy winter period.
