The Netherlands international insists that he is loving life on Merseyside, where games are coming thick and fast, especially after a "nightmare" spell at Southampton last year because of injury.
And ahead of Liverpool's Champions League tie against AS Roma at Anfield, van Dijk admitted that he was hopeful of the club's chances in Europe soon after leaving Southampton three months ago.
