Liverpool overcame Tottenham 2-1 at Wembley in a game that was billed as an acid test for Liverpool’s title aspirations. The Reds controlled the game from start to finish and could have won by a bigger margin had they been more clinical in front of goal.

Tottenham’s talisman and captian for the game, Harry Kane barely had a kick in the game with Liverpool’s center-half duo of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez putting in a flawless performance.

The defensive solidarity of the Merseysiders was a far cry from their capitulation against Spurs at Wembley last season when they lost 4-1. Van Djik in particular was an imperious force at the back, winning every 50-50 challenge against the England captain as well his strike partner Lucas Moura.

The 27-year-old defender has been in fantastic form so far this season and has transformed Liverpool into a solid defensive unit.

Liverpool fans on social media couldn’t contain their delight at how Van Djik pocketed Kane throughout the game. They flooded Twitter with memes of how the Dutchman got the better of Kane. Check out some of the tweets below –

If Van Djik can maintain this level of performance throughout the season, there is no doubt that the Reds can challenge Man City for the title this season.
