The Reds star believes there are several teams in with a chance of glory this season. Liverpool currently sit second in the table, five points behind Manchester City, ahead of they away trip to Burnley tonight. Arsenal are six points adrift of Jurgen Klopp’s side before they face Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening. And Van Dijk is convinced Unai Emery’s side are contenders. “I don't see it as a two-horse-race,” he told ESPN FC. “If you look at everyone around us, Chelsea, Arsenal, then everyone has been doing brilliantly so far and it's going to be very interesting. “It will be very difficult, but we need to look at ourselves. That's the only thing, what is best for us. “I don't think it [late winner against Everton] means anything at this point. “The thing is, we have so many games still to play and so many difficult ones for everyone in the league.    “Obviously, we want to keep winning, keep doing what we're doing and we need to look at ourselves, that's the most important thing. “Then we'll see if it's going to be close. “We believe in each other, we know what we are capable of, we know we are very difficult to beat and very difficult to get a result from. “But to score in the dying seconds if always something special, and especially in the Merseyside derby. “Obviously, we all have a lot of ambitions, we all want to win things, but I think it's too early to look too far ahead. “We just need to focus on the game that we have coming and don't look too far ahead.” United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford at 8pm this evening. Liverpool kick off against Burnley at Turf Moor at 7.45pm.
