Van Dijk insists Liverpool relish pressure in Man City chase

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has admitted that his side are relishing the battle to win the Premier League.

They are locked in a fight with Manchester City to try and win the league for the first time in the Premier League era.

And Van Dijk knows the pressure can be tough on some teams, but insists that his side will be able to cope.

"We need to look at ourselves," Van Dijk said to reporters after his side's 1-0 win over Everton.

"We have no need to look at City. We try to win all our games, that's how we go into every game, and that's the only way forward.

"Pressure is always at the club. That is a good thing. The season is very long. It is good to stay close to them but to win our games is the most important thing.

"We need to keep doing what we are doing, keep improving, and keep winning games – hopefully with good football."
