Brentford defender Ajer exciting to face Van Dijk and Liverpool

Brentford defender Kris Ajer is ready to face Liverpool and Virgil van Dijk.

Saturday's match will see Ajer go up against another former Celtic defender in Van Dijk, and the 23-year-old can only hope to emulate the Dutchman's achievements in the game.

“For me Virgil Van Dijk is one of the best defenders in the world so for me it is exciting and it is going to be a great, great challenge for us," he said.

“We know how strong they are at the back as well as the quality they have up front. It is a team full of talent and the way they press and the way they attack, it's amazing.

“So, it is going to be a tough game but we know if we defend strongly and defend as well as we did against Wolves we have players offensively who can create opportunities and score so it is going to be a very tough one.

Liverpool are big, big favourites but maybe that suits us well."
