Martin Keown, former Arsenal defender and current pundit for BBC Sport thinks that one Liverpool player overshadows everyone else in importance.
So much so that had he gone on to join Manchester City, there would never be a title race like the one we are witnessing.
We are talking about none other than Virgil Van-Dijk. The Dutchman was a popular commodity in the market as a Southampton player. City were also equally interested in his services.
Keown is grateful the defender joined Liverpool, establishing such a powerful defence that Liverpool could mount a title bid from.
“He is just class, isn’t he? He purrs around the pitch, in possession or out of possession, he is a mountain in the air and has taken on the responsibility, at this time in his career to try to lead Liverpool to the title.
“That’s because he wants to be a winner. I am just glad he didn’t go to City, because he could have gone there and we wouldn’t have had a brilliant title race like this one if he had.”
