Van Dijk faces eight month layoff

Van Dijk faces eight month layoff”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, who took over at the London club after working under Pep Guardiola at City, had clearly prepared his side well tactically and they looked solid, despite losing defender Rob Holding to injury during the warm-up. He had a couple of hard weeks since he last played for us. "We have come up to the speed of the game and that showed today".

Everton, who have not beaten Liverpool since 2010, remain three points clear of their Merseyside rivals at the top of the table after a number of controversial calls went their way at Goodison Park.

It was Mane's elbow that was said to have been just offside, despite looking like he had timed his run well on first viewing.

There are fears that Virgil van Dijk could be out for a while after the Dutch worldwide came off injured in the 2-2 draw against Everton on Saturday.

Influential centre-back Van Dijk managed just eleven minutes before being forced off during the Premier League game, while Thiago completed the full 90 minutes at Goodison Park.

Klopp told his post-match press conference: "When I left the pitch, Thiago told me in the red card situation with Richarlison he thinks he got injured".

Mohamed Salah restored Liverpool's lead in the 72nd but early season pacesetters Everton drew level nine minutes later with a header by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the England striker's 10th goal in seven games in all competitions this season.

Liverpool thought they had won it in stoppage time when Pickford could not keep out Jordan Henderson's shot - but in a finish to match the chaotic nature of the game, Mane was adjudged to be offside after a lengthy wait for the VAR decision.

Thiago, meanwhile, was on the receiving end of a heavy lunge by Richarlison, which resulted in a red card for the Everton forward in the final moment of normal time.

There are fears that van Dijk tore his ACL and might miss up to eight months of action with Liverpool already having first-choice keeper Alisson out with an injury ahead of their gruelling schedule that involves the Champions League.

It was an injury-time goal that claimed Southampton a point after Jannik Vestergaard headed in a dramatic equaliser after Danny Ings and Che Adams had earlier brought the visitors back from 2-0 down to 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Southampton came from behind twice at Chelsea despite Timo Werner scoring two skilful individual goals for the home side, his first strikes in the Premier League.
