Liverpool stunned Bayern Munich in Germany on Wednesday evening, with Sadio Mane netting a brace and Van Dijk hammering home his header in a 3-1 win.

And eagle-eyed fans will have noticed Van Dijk was screaming instructions at his team-mates seconds before his header in the second half.

“We knew it was going to be tough.
“We knew we were going to get chances and we’re glad to be in the last eight.”
