Situation at Anfield

Liverpool have mainly utilized record signing Virgil van Dijk (30) and Joel Matip (30) in the central defense this term and they also have young CBs like Gomez (24), Phillips (24) and summer signing Konate (22) in the back up.

Therefore, the current central defense is very strong and the future seems sorted as well.
