Liverpool: Virgil van Dijk oozed confidence in his Liverpool debut

A Ramirez revival on the cards A Ramirez revival on the cards

Klopp sees Van Dijk as not just an imposing aerial barrier - he headed clear a dozen, if not more, booming goal kicks from Everton's Jordan Pickford - but as a vocal guide, an organizer, and a leader, something the club's defense has lacked since the retirement of Jamie Carragher in 2013. The goal is very special for me and my family.

On to the stats sheet, Van Dijk's dominance in his aerial duels against Everton was perhaps one of the most glaring facets that stood out from his performance, having won all eight of his defensive aerial jousts; the most of any other player on the pitch, with the next best being Everton's Phil Jagielka (six).

Virgil van Dijk, who joined Liverpool from Southampton in the January transfer window, scored in the Merseyside derby.

During the first half, Everton defender Mason Holgate was adjudged to have held back Adam Lallana in the area, with James Milner scoring from the resulting spot kick.

Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history
His last game with Oakland was the infamous "Tuck Rule" game during the 2002 playoffs that helped launch the Patriots dynasty. He amassed a 57-55 record in seven seasons as Tampa Bay's coach.

Van Dijk was constantly being harassed by the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Wayne Rooney, Yannick Bolasie, and/or Gylfi Sigurdsson when he would go up to win headers in Liverpool's defensive third, but used his strength and clever body positioning to his advantage, sticking to his task well. "Exactly the same situation".

Liverpool continued to carve out chances but were unable to provide the decisive touch and Everton hit them with an equaliser on the counter attack.

Tempers flared when Roberto Firmino was pushed into the advertising hoardings by Holgate before referee Madley stepped in to prevent the incident escalating further following an angry exchange of words.

In that sense, what his goal here delivered was not simply a derby victory - though that, of course, was of the greatest and most immediate significance to Liverpool - and progression to the fourth round of the F.A. Cup, but time.
