Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk was named as the Premier League’s best player throughout the 2018-19 campaign.
Manchester City centre-back Ruben Dias won the aforementioned award last season.
With that being the case, ESPN decided to compare Van Dijk’s 2018-19 campaign to Dias’ 2020-21 season.
The statistics pictured below highlight that Van Dijk is a better player than Dias when he is at his best.
Van Dijk missed the majority of the 2020-21 campaign because of a serious knee injury.
