Virgil van Dijk believes that Liverpool FC’s current group still have room to improve despite a nearly flawless season from Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The Reds managed to overturn a 3-0 first-leg deficit to beat FC Barcelona 4-0 in the return fixture of their Champions League semi-final at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Klopp’s men have managed to reach the Champions League final for the second successive season after Liverpool FC suffered a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in Kiev in last year’s showpiece.

Liverpool FC are a mere point adrift of defending Premier League champions Manchester City ahead of the final round of fixtures in the 2018-19 campaign this weekend.

The Reds have only lost one Premier League game this season following a 2-1 defeat by Manchester City at The Etihad back in January.

Speaking to Sky Sports about Liverpool FC’s improvement over the past 12 months at Anfield, Van Dijk claimed that the Reds can get even better in the future.

“That’s something we work towards,” Van Dijk said. “I feel that (Manchester) City already have that bit of status because they have been dominating last year so much.

“Hopefully we can keep going and make it very difficult for any team in the world.

“We have a great age group. Between 20 and 27, 28, so hopefully we can do it all together for the next couple of years at least and grow as a team and hopefully get a lot of success.”

Liverpool FC will win the Premier League title if the Reds beat Wolves and Manchester City draw or lose away to Brighton Hove and Albion in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Merseyside outfit haven’t won the Premier League title despite finishing in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

Liverpool FC haven’t won the top-flight title since 1990.
