Virgil van Dijk could face 7-8 months out after suffering ACL injury in Jordan Pickford clash during Liverpool’s draw at Everton.
Virgil van Dijk has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury and is facing seven or eight months out of action for Liverpool.
In the first half of Saturday’s Merseyside Derby, the Liverpool defender limped off after a horror challenge from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The England and Toffees No.1 was seemingly lucky to escape a red card after scything the Dutchman down in the box early on, clattering into his knee with the challenge.
And it has now been reported on the BeIN Sports broadcast: “The information that we’re receiving is that he’s done his anterior cruciate ligament in that incident with Jordan Pickford.
“And he’ll be out for the best part of seven/eight months if that is the case.”
