Liverpool are just two wins away from winning this season's Premier League trophy. They travelled a short distance to local rivals Everton on Sunday looking to get their first victory, then wrap up the title against Crystal Palace on Wednesday June 24.

Van Dijk who has played a significant role to the Reds progress believes sealing the top-flight title is just the beginning for the Reds heydays, insisting Jurgen Klopp's men still have plenty thirst for more trophies next season.

The Liverpool centre-back told the Mail on Sunday: "With two wins, we will be champions; but it doesn't stop there.

"We want to keep going, we want to take it into next season as well because that will start pretty quickly after the last game of this season.

"We have not won the title yet. We have not won anything yet. But the aim is to start next season in the same fashion.

"The manager spoke to us as well and said that what we do in these last nine games will set the tone for next season as well.

"We can be a team that can keep progressing. We have players who can progress and make big steps in their development. Winning the league would be a big experience that could take them to the next level.

"We can achieve that first and foremost this season and then we will see what can happen next season.

"If we win the title this season, we will try to retain it. That’s what we are aiming for but everyone knows how difficult it is to retain the title, especially in England and we are not there this season yet.

"We tried to retain our Champions League title and it wasn’t possible. It’s very difficult.

"We will try to focus on the nine games we have left but we hope to set the pace for the rest of next season with the title behind our name and defend the title as well."
