Man City defender Aymeric Laporte has been compared to Liverpool rival Virgil van Dijk because of the transformative impact he has had on the side.

The Frenchman's arrival at City helped Pep Guardiola's charge to a record breaking Premier League campaign whereas Van Dijk brought the final piece of puzzle and led Liverpool to the Champions League final.

Football pundit Tony Cascarino believes Laporte has done to City what Van Dijk has done for Liverpool and that the injury is a massive blow.

“That really hurt Manchester City a lot, because he’s done what Van Dijk’s done for Liverpool.

Laporte and Van Dijk both arrived at their clubs for massive fees in January 2018 and the pair have been the best defenders in the country by far ever since.

His loss has been keenly felt with Guardiola having to convert Fernandinho to a make shift centre-back and City falling eight points behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race.

“Laporte getting injured was massive to City,” the former Chelsea man said on  talkSPORT .
