Carragher feels Van Dijk has shown why Liverpool was right to spend £75million to sign him from Premier League rivals Southampton in the January transfer window.
“Tonight is the reason why you spend £75m on Virgil van Dijk,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“There were two or three minutes to go and Liverpool give away a free-kick in a dangerous position. He wins the first header and it goes out for a corner. Then the next one comes in and that is where the breakaway comes, and that’s the goal.”
