Would you rather sell Van Dijk or Salah? Liverpool fans quizzed

Liverpool’s title charge this season has been a long time coming and something to behold.

The Reds have gone from frustratingly inconsistent last season to terrifyingly ruthless this time around in a mere matter of months and are now on the verge of sealing their first title in 29 years.

A large part of their improvement has been down to the summer signings of Alisson and Fabinho, with the Brazilian pair adding a real air of superiority to a side that previously lacked the ability to kill off an opponent.

However, those two are not the ones taking all the headlines. Week in, week out, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah are the two stars donning red and white that the papers and pundits just cannot get enough of.

Van Dijk is Liverpool’s towering colossus at the back, while Salah is the cold-blooded goalscorer who can poach goals and fire them in from 25-yards à la Chelsea.

But it would be foolish to forget that Liverpool have a nasty habit when it comes to selling their star talent.

Sure, things seem a little different now under Jurgen Klopp, but in the past, the likes of Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Xabi Alonso, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho have all left Anfield for pastures new.

Imagine if a Real Madrid or Barcelona came in for Van Dijk or Salah. Just how much of an effect would that have on Liverpool’s chances of success? And which one would they miss more if they were to leave?

Watch the video at the top of the article to hear Liverpool fans tackle all the big questions – and a few obscure ones – doing the rounds at Anfield.
