Dominic Calvert-Lewin POCKETS Virgil van Dijk in funny BT Sport ad before Liverpool play Everton in the Merseyside Derby

BT Sport mocked Virgil van Dijk in their latest commercial for the Merseyside derby.

The £ 75m defender has established himself as one of the best in the world since moving to Anfield in 2018, scoring against the Toffees on his debut.

However, given Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s hot form, the production team decided to cheer the forward after his call-up to the English squad.

Making the most of some sleek CGI graphics, Calvert-Lewin can be seen putting Van Dijk in his pocket ahead of the October 17th game.

While it remains to be seen how Van Dijk will face the 23-year-old, who has six Premier League goals in four games, the hype is sure to annoy the Ballon d’Or contender.

Carlo Ancelotti insists he did nothing special with the striker after calling up England, insisting instead that he told him to work closer to the penalty area.

“He is a complete striker. It is not easy to find a striker with these characteristics, ”Ancelotti said before the visit to Brighton.

“He has a lot of energy, he’s really fast. I am really happy that he is doing really well and that he scores goals because in the end a striker is judged by the goals he scores.

“It’s a great result for him (England squad). I hope it won’t be the last. It depends on him. It is going very well. It needs consistency.

“For the attackers we do some individual exercises but nothing special. I think it was more mental or tactical to be focused in the box.

“Having James (Rodriguez) behind is useful, not only for Dominic as a striker, but for us to have better ball possession.
