Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk and Roberto Firmino prank fans in hilarious video

Things are good for Liverpool at the moment

They are currently joint top of the Premier League after an unbeaten start to the season, and are maintaining momentum after their recent revival, particularly last season’s journey to the Champions League final.

One player who has been integral to that revival is Virgil Van Dijk, who arrived from Southampton in January 2018.

Thanks in part to him, Liverpool’s once-leaky defence is now one of the strongest in the league, as evidenced by the fact that Klopp’s side are currently on a run of seven consecutive home clean sheets in the league.

Van Dijk, joined by teammates Roberto Firmino and Trent Alexander-Arnold, decided to take a bit of time off doing good things on the pitch to do something good off it.

As part of the club’s partnership with PES 2019 makers Konami, the three players surprised and photobombed a host of young supporters who thought they were simply posing for a picture with the game.

Just look at the surprise on their faces, either that or they’re transfixed by the sheer whiteness of Firmino’s teeth.
