Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk selects three Manchester City players for his dream five-a-side team.

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk has selected three Manchester City players for his best five-a-side team.

The Netherlands international, who has established a reputation as one of the best defenders in the game under Jurgen Klopp, has chosen Ederson, Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne for his dream team.

Justifying his selections to the official Liverpool website, Van Dijk said: "I think [Ederson] is an outstanding goalkeeper. I think this season there have been more better goalkeepers than we have seen maybe in the past.

"But I think Ederson is the best of the rest - I think Alisson [Becker] is still number one, that's my feeling.

"I think [Laporte] is 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."

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang occupied the final two spots in Van Dijk's team.
