FA Cup: Van Dijk grabs derby winner on debut

Liverpool vs Everton team news Virgil van Dijk makes debut for Reds

The Dutch centre-half, making his debut for the Reds after completing a staggering £75m transfer on New Year's Day, had already been putting in a strong performance on his first game in a red shirt, but it was at the other end where the former Southampton really man made his mark.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp may have spent €84 million on Virgil van Dijk but he was still impressed by the Dutchman's debut.

"Nice one! A fairy tale in a world with not a lot of fairy tales anymore, so I think something like that is quite special", said a beaming Klopp. It was a hard decision to make, to be honest, because, to be 100 per cent honest, the first plan was not to start him tonight but then Dejan and Raggy played a lot of games in the last few weeks, so I changed my mind this morning.

"I still know that he's a human being and things can happen that he can show it tonight, things like this happen". The world's most expensive defender Virgil van Dijk began repaying his fee with the victor against Everton in the FA Cup third round.

"It was for sure not the best piece of football for 95 minutes but a proper fight", Klopp told BBC Sport.

Everton struck back midway through the second half as Gylfi Sigurdsson slotted Phil Jagielka's pull back into the bottom corner from the edge of the 18-yard box before Van Dijk bagged the late victor. We have a good chance to win this. But when you make mistakes in football you have to react and we did again.

"Everyone has welcomed me very well".

"There is still plenty of room for improvement". Dejan [Lovren] and Raggy [Ragnar Klavan] played a lot of games in the last few weeks, so I changed my mind this morning. "It was a tough game but we're through".

Van Dijk, signed for a reported £75million in January, headed in a dramatic 84th-minute victor on debut at Anfield.

The Holland worldwide becomes the first player to score a victor at Anfield in an FA Cup tie against Everton, at the fifth time of asking.

The incident arose after Holgate pushed the Reds forward into the crowd before the pair exchanged insults within earshot of Madley.
