Tony Cascarino believes Jordan Pickford’s tackle on Virgil van Dijk during Saturday’s Merseyside derby was as bad as the challenge Roy Keane famously put in on Alf-Inge Haaland.

Pickford avoided a red card for his early clash with Liverpool defender Van Dijk, with refereeing board PGMOL later explaining it was subjectively decided the Everton goalkeeper had tried to play the ball.

But he flew in high and scissored his legs across Van Dijk, who crumpled to the ground and may now miss up to EIGHT months with an ACL injury.
