Virgil van Dijk has admitted that winning the Premier League title will be even more difficult than last season.

Virgil Van dijk was not at his best on Sunday as Liverpool lost 7-2 to an Aston villa side inspired by Grealish.

“I think trying to stay at the top is the hardest thing to do,” he told Eddie Hearn’s ‘No Passion No Point’ podcast on BBC SOUND “

“Everyone wants to see you fall when you reach the top.

“That is what life is about, especially these days. For me, I want to give everything I have got until I retire and then have no regrets after.

“I don’t want any regrets afterwards, I think that would be the worst feeling you can have. It is going to be challenging times coming up. We are champions – something that took a while.

We should enjoy the moment and go for it.”

The champions were without duo Thiago Alcantara and Sadio mane after they both tested positive for COVID-19.
