Jordan Pickford could still face punishment for his X-rated challenge on Virgil van Dijk.

That could mean that Everton keeper Pickford could yet get a three game ban if the FA look again after receiving referee Michael Oliver’s report.

The FA will now wait on Oliver’s report before making a decision but they could have that option which comes after Liverpool complained to the Premier League and asked for an explanation on the van Dijk incident and also Jordan Henderson seeing an injury time winner ruled out.

The Football Association can take retrospective action on incidents which were missed by the referee - and that also extends to the video assistant referee.

Should Pickford be banned for his challenge?

It is understood that the VAR - which was being done by David Coote - did look at the incident as a possible penalty but because the video technology ruled it was offside they did not take further action.

Premier League chiefs did discuss in February about introducing a “tolerance level” which in the most fine of margins would allow goals to stand as with Henderson.
