UPDATE: A report from beIN Sports are stating that Virgil van Dijk has ruptured his ACL and will be out for up to eight months, which would be a shattering blow for Liverpool.
Van Dijk was clattered knee-high by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. From a corner the ball found Virgil van Dijk at the back post as Jordan Pickford lunged towards him and caught him around his knee.
The foul occurred in the box, but no penalty kick was given as the Dutchman was offside before the contact arrived. VAR was used to check if Van Dijk was off, and he was.
