Anfield Watch Verdict
We love Van Dijk's optimism. But, we do believe that Manchester City will go on and win the 2021-22 Premier League title.
The Citizens have won three of the past four titles. They certainly know how to close the deal.
But, stranger things have happened in football. Hopefully it is Liverpool lifting the trophy at the end of the season.
