Virgil van Dijk can stop Manchester city Erling Haaland during both teams premier league tie - Glen Johnson


Former Chelsea star Glen Johnson has picked Virgil van Dijk as the Liverpool star who can stop Manchester City’s Erling Haaland during both teams’ Premier League tie.

Man City will on Saturday afternoon host Liverpool in a Premier League clash at Etihad.

Speaking with Squawka, Johnson was asked whether anyone can combat Haaland’s physicality.

The former defender replied: “If anyone can stop Haaland, Van Dijk can. The issue is, with City, it is not just about him and there are goal threats everywhere. Liverpool have to be careful to not just build the whole game plan around Haaland.”

Halaand finished as the top scorer in the Premier League last season
