Virgil van Dijk's Statistics From Bayern Munich Game Are Unbelievable

Mane's first goal was a thing of beauty, with the Senegalese forward plucking a high ball out of the night sky and dinking a subtle finish into an unguarded net with Manuel Neuer dithering about in no-man's land, as he's increasingly prone to do.

Satisfaction couldn't be greater around Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp after his team proceeded to the last-8 round of the Champions League after a 3-1 victory against reigning German champions Bayern Munich in Wednesday's second leg of the last 16 round.

But in Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool possess a player who has become so important and influential to Jurgen Klopp's side that he could prove to be the extra-special player who makes all the difference for the Anfield outfit this season, both in the Champions League and back home in the Premier League.

Mourinho knows from firsthand experience how emotional all-Premier League encounters in Europe can be, having overseen several titanic clashes against Liverpool in the Champions League during his first stint as Chelsea manager, including the semi-finals in 2005 and 2007 respectively.

"Today we didn't play like in the Bundesliga, of course I don't know why". Liverpool previous year had an English game against City, I was not here, but it could happen again.

Government agrees 'legally binding' Brexit deal changes after PM's last-minute Strasbourg dash
Brexit supporters in Britain fear the backstop could be used to bind the country to European Union regulations indefinitely. Rejecting the deal could result in Brexit being "delayed or diluted", he said in a message aimed at Tory eurosceptics.

Despite starting on the bench for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, the Brazilian player soon had the responsibility of replacing club captain Jordan Henderson, and did a good job even with all the pressure on the game. I thought they were as bad as I've ever seen. I was really happy with how strong the second half was, how mature it was, how much football we played. "We impressed them massively". Liverpool got precisely what they paid for: the best.

The Polish forward was this season's top scorer in the Champions League ahead of the meeting but fired off just two shots in the entire 180 minute tie, thanks to the work of Virgil Van Dijk and the Reds' defence.

Time will tell "where this is taking us when it comes to this season's campaign".

This won't be coincidence and finding Mane with crosses to the far post, whether he's playing as a striker as against Watford and late in the Bayern game, or on the left wing, must be an approach they work on in training. "It's just a good moment for Liverpool and let's enjoy that".
