Jordan Pickford came charging out of his goal to close down Virgil van Dijk following a cross to the defender, clattering into the Dutchman and forcing him to leave the field due to injury.

Unsurprisingly, that left Liverpool fans on social media furious as plenty took to Twitter to express their outrage and confusion at the decision.



However, as Van Dijk was offside, the incident was not punished - despite the fact that it was an extremely poor challenge that resulted in injury.



It got even worse when Pickford displayed a diving save to deny Trent Alexander-Arnold from a free-kick, with fans making it clear he shouldn't have been on the field to keep the effort out.

The latest Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton certainly lived up to the billing, with major talking points just minutes after the game started.

That raises serious questions about the laws of the game and whether they should be changed to include reckless challenges with excessive force.

Had the incident been violent conduct, such as a headbutt or raising hands to the opponent, the punishment would have still taken place.
