Virgil van Dijk has just won the Premier League Player of the Month award for December – becoming the first center-back to win the award since Jan Vertonghen back in March 2013.
December saw van Dijk have a colossal month for Liverpool, cementing their place at the top of the Premier League with seven wins out of seven games, with four clean sheets, two assists (of course that one against Everton counted) and a tidy volley versus Wolves and became the first Dutchman to win since Tim Krul in November 2013.
