Virgil van Dijk: Liverpool defender needs knee surgery and faces lengthy lay-off

Virgil van Dijk: Liverpool defender needs knee surgery and faces lengthy lay-off”

Virgil van Dijk had taken be taken off, after Pickford rushed out of his goal and slide into the Dutch defender at around knee height.

The 29-year-old Netherlands defender was unable to continue following a rash challenge by Toffees keeper Jordan Pickford in the first half.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp (L) could be forced into a transfer solution after the injury of defender Virgil van Dijk.

Since then Liverpool won the Champions League in 2019 and ended a 30-year wait to win the Premier League earlier this year. "They are that outstanding".

"You need players at the back who can set the game up, and I think Fabinho can certainly do that, because obviously he's very good on the ball and used to playing in midfield".

"And I think the only way, like I said, long-term to deter players from actually putting themselves in the position where they're going to risk an opponent is to actually consider the rule".

Liverpool have been handed a major double boost as Alisson Becker is back in light training while Thiago Alcantara didn't suffer any serious injury against Everton at the weekend, according to reports.

Without the Frenchman, City's title defence imploded paving the way for Liverpool to cruise to the league title by 18 points.

The loss of Van Dijk's dominant aerial presence was obvious as Everton scored twice from headers to come from behind in a contentious derby at Goodison Park.

But they remain ahead of the rest of the expected title challengers with none of the Premier League's "big six" enjoying a ideal start to the season.

Ornstein says that 'the FA's policy is to issue retrospective punishment only for red-card offences that are not seen by match officials at the time, including the VAR'. It has been reported that Van Dijk will go through surgery but the time of it is not yet confirmed.

"We saw him do it a couple of weeks ago and he was man of the match, so he could be the one who slots in".

"I really do think that if that's the case, the powers that be have got to look at, maybe as a deterrent, how long the player you tackle is out, whether you meant it or not, is how long will be suspended".
