Liverpool ace Virgil van Dijk is refusing to get carried away despite the Reds leading the way in the Premier League title race.
The defender scored in Friday’s 2-0 win at Wolves to maintain the Reds’ unbeaten Premier League season and ensure they stayed top at Christmas.
Mo Salah netted his 14th goal of the season in the first half before teeing up Van Dijk’s game-clinching second for the visitors.

In eight of the last nine campaigns the team top on Christmas Day has won the league – except Liverpool in 2013 – but Van Dijk is remaining calm ahead of a mammoth clash with title rivals Manchester City on January 3.
He said: “There’s a long way to go yet. It’s a position that everyone wants to be in and we are in it at the moment. That’s the only thing it is and we need to keep going.
“The next game is Newcastle United on Wednesday and then Arsenal and Manchester City, so it can change, but we are not going to think about that. We take it game by game.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
