A Liverpool statement read: “Liverpool FC can confirm Virgil van Dijk will undergo surgery on the knee injury he sustained during Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Everton.

“Following surgery, Van Dijk will begin a rehabilitation programme with the club’s medical team to enable him to reach full fitness as soon as possible.” Meanwhile, the culprit behind Van Dijk’s injury, Pickford, could face a retrospective ban for his actions.

Van Dijk had to be substituted in the first half of the Merseyside derby on Saturday after being taken out by a rash challenge from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Alisson and Van Dijk are widely regarded as the two signings that turned Liverpool into title winners.

It comes as another blow to Liverpool, who are already without first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker due to an injury of his own.
