Van Dijk names three Man City stars in his Premier League five-a-side team

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has named three Manchester City players in his five-a-side team.

The Dutch captain picked the trio of trio Ederson, Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne in his dream Premier League five-a-side team with Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min, with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leading the attack.

Dijk was tasked with naming a five-a-side team but wasn't allowed to pick any of his Liverpool teammates and speaking on the club’s website about his selection he said: "I think he (Ederson) is an outstanding goalkeeper.

"I think this season there have been better goalkeepers than we have seen maybe in the past, but I think Ederson is the best of the rest-I think Alisson is still number one, that’s my feeling."

"He’s (Laporte) been showing how important he is for their team and I think he’s an outstanding defender. I think he’s a very, very, very good defender, so that’s why I pick him.

"It looks like it’s only City players! But Kevin De Bruyne, you don’t need to say too much about him. I think Kevin is a good guy first of all but he’s an outstanding player. You see things differently and yeah, respect only. He’s a fantastic player."

City and Liverpool have developed quite the rivalry in recent years as the two clubs have emerged as the dominant forces in the Premier League.
