The Football Spin on Virgil Van Dijk taking Liverpool to the top, Solskjaer doing it the Manchester United Way and Ireland’s Declan Rice

Liverpool are top of the league at Christmas and they can thank Virgil Van Dijk.

Virgil Van Dijk took Liverpool four points clear at the top of the Premier League when they beat Wolves on Friday but can they still be there in May?

On The Football Spin, Paddy McKenna and Dion Fanning are joined by Carl Kinsella and Melissa Reddy to discuss the chances of Liverpool winning their first title since 1990 and the ongoing majesty of Virgil Van Dijk.

Melissa watched Liverpool's win at Wolves and she says Van Dijk now looks a bargain at £75 million. But do Liverpool have the strength of personality to deal with the pressure coming their way?

Dion and Carl also discuss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment as Manchester United manager, the rage of Alexis Sanchez and the endless anger of Roy Keane. They also celebrate the Christmas miracle that is the news that Declan Rice may be about to end all doubt and commit to Ireland.
