Virgil van Dijk 4/7 not to celebrate if he scores against former club Southampton

Virgil van Dijk makes a swift return to St Mary’s this weekend as current employers Liverpool pay a visit to his former side Southampton, and bookmaker Betway is odds-on that the defender does not celebrate if he gets on the scoresheet.

Van Dijk finally completed a mega-money move to Liverpool during the January Transfer Window and as one of several ex-Saints in the Reds fold he will almost certainly receive a hostile welcome from the Southampton fans on Sunday.

Betway expects him to rise about it though, going 4/7 that he does not celebrate if he scores.

Having scored the winner on his debut against Merseyside rivals Everton, before giving away a late penalty against Tottenham last weekend, the £75million man has been at the centre of the action since his move to Anfield and he is available at 6/1 to continue in a similar vein and get on the scoresheet on Sunday.

If he does find the target and decides to celebrate, van Dijk is 7/4 to repeat the knee slide seen versus Everton in the FA Cup, while the bookmaker is 6/1 that he celebrates by kissing his new club’s Liver bird badge.

And if you do back him to celebrate a goal, Betway will refund your stake if he does not score.

“Virgil van Dijk has spoken highly of his time at Southampton and we think it’s likely he won’t rejoice if hitting the back of the net,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com. “The Dutchman couldn’t contain himself versus Everton, though, and is 7/4 to drop to his knees again.
“Van Dijk is yet to show the form that convinced the Reds to part with £75million and they will be in need of a big performance on Sunday. He is 6/1 to score his first league goal while its 14/1 for him to claim the Man of the Match award.”
