Who is Man City's Van Dijk?

During the end of a year ago, Liverpool were seven points clear at the club but since then they have constantly dropped points and right now they are just two points ahead of second-placed Man City having played one game more.

Van Dijk has helped to push Jurgen Klopp's side into Premier League title contention, while taking in another productive Champions League campaign.

However, Joleon Lescott doesn't think any Liverpool player would get into City's team.

"Liverpool have grown hugely as a team recently and a lot of that is thanks to Van Dijk".

Liverpool have not won a league title in 29 years and ending that drought this season would allow them to move to 19 title wins in the English top flight, one behind United's record. "He is doing fantastic so I am really pleased for him".

"From a Man City perspective, I have been very impressed with [Aymeric] Laporte this season, who has arguably made a similar impact to what van Dijk has at Liverpool".

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand admits a City title win would be easier to watch, as his former side's two greatest rivals fight it out to be crowned champions. "It is interesting that they've been able to overtake Liverpool so quickly".

Man City are chasing history by trying to win the quadruple this season but these rounds of fixtures have not gone down too well with Pep Guardiola who is reportedly very upset with the Premier League.

But Lescott feels that the disparity in quality between the two is underlined by the fact that Guardiola wouldn't leave out any of his current crop in favour of a replacement from Liverpool.
