The Dutch central defender from Liverpool mishandled a backward ball that meant the Gunners’ first goal.
In front of Arsenal, Virgil van Dijk he had one of his worst games since he got to Liverpool and he himself knows it, since he was not at all happy after the match for the Premier League.
In dialogue with Sky Sports, the Dutch central defender assured: “We gave them the goals. Until their first goal, I think we were totally dominating, we put pressure on them, it was all ours, but we gave them two goals.”
He added: “Obviously, it is difficult to come back from that. We created some opportunities, they tried to attack us sometimes, but if you give away the goals like we did, including myself, you get what you deserve.”
Finally, Van Dijk closed: “If you look at the goals, they shouldn’t happen, but until then there was nothing wrong. We played very well, we put pressure on them and we scored a fantastic goal. A moment of concentration, which sometimes also happens in football and you have to deal with it. Today we deal twice. “
