Liverpool are on a roll this season. They are on top of the Premier League table and are through to the next round of the Champions League and FA Cup, and Jurgen Klopp is getting a lot of praise for it.
#3 – Virgil van Dijk
Let's start with the most obvious one. Virgil van Dijk has been the stand out player for Liverpool this season and the impact he has on the team is unmatched. The Dutchman has shown what the team was missing in the first half of last season and with his leadership skills, the Reds are keeping the opponents quiet in almost every game.
Van Dijk, a £75 million signing (world record for a defender), has proved that he is worth every penny they paid for him. The centre-back has been the nightmare for all the strikers and Troy Deeney, Watford's forward, has openly admitted it too. He said, “I’ve said it many times, I hate him. I hate going up against him. He’s too big, too strong, too quick, too good on the ball, loves fighting, a good head of hair,” to BBC Radio 5.
Van Dijk's base card stands at 85 right now and he will be one of the firsts to get an upgrade when the rating refresh happens. He has SIX other cards in Ultimate Team as well – two cards at 86, two at 87, one POTM card at 89 and a TOTY card at 95!
While his upgrade might not be a huge one, a push to 86 or 87 – similar to his TOTW cards is very likely.
