Those are the ideas of Arsenal legend Martin Keown.
Liverpool welcome Manchester City the next day (4pm) to Anfield in what is ready to a blockbuster showdown.
Meanwhile, Van Dijk, who signed in a £75million deal from Southampton, will make his Premier League debut for the Reds.
Last season, the Anfield outfit seemed bereft of concepts having recorded 4 defeats, 4 attracts and one win within the month of January.
And Keown thinks that Van Dijk’s arrival can spice up Klopp’s temper for the remainder of the season, beginning off with the City conflict.
“Van Dijk is a gift for the second half of the season, a tonic to energise the manager and the players,” Keown informed the Daily Mail.
“Klopp has used his squad properly with the likes of Dominic Solanke and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“It has benefited his giant names. Klopp is the dynamo.
“He generates all of that power and exuberance within the staff.
“The staff replicate Klopp — they replicate the good stuff of him.
“They have been drained closing 12 months as a result of he was once drained. If he’s energised and up for it, they are going to be too.
“This conflict might be a cracker.”
