For example, Mohamed Salah was giving a rare chat to the local media in April when Virgil van Dijk chipped in as he walked past, declaring the record-breaking Egyptian was "lucky."

It's just a small snippet into the close makeup within the current Liverpool dressing room. Those within will tell you it clicks as well as the front three of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, who can partly attribute their success to their close relationship, too. And supporters in 2018 are now be privy to such joshing and noticeable unity thanks to social media.
"Yes, it is [a close-knit squad]," midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum told ESPN FC. "During the season you have to grow. We hope that it's going to be even better.
