Mind games are ON for Merseyside derby. Everton forward Richarlison says he has “already dribbled past” Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk and can name three better defenders than the Dutchman.

Richarlison says Dijk is great defender but, for me there are better defenders. He names Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos as better than Dijk.

What you guys have to say?

Richarlison can shout at top of his voice but the fact will remain fact. Van Dijk is the best defender currently.

Van Dijk has been outstanding since joining the Reds. He played a major part in Liverpool’s Champions League triumph last season and Liverpool are almost certain to win Premier League this season.
