Photo: Laurence Griffiths/Pool via Reuters Liverpool's hopes of retaining their Premier League title have suffered a devastating blow after it was confirmed Virgil van Dijk would undergo surgery for an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Virgil Van Dijk gets to the ball first in the early stages of Saturday’s Merseyside derby.

Jurgen Klopp's worst fears were realised with the result of Van Dijk's knee scan, the injury following Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's challenge in the sixth minute of Saturday's Merseyside derby.

Repeating that feat without the talisman Van Dijk would eclipse even that success.

While Van Dijk faces a prolonged period of rehabilitation, Liverpool received more positive news on midfielder Thiago.

Since Van Dijk signed for Liverpool in January 2018, the club have won the Champions League, the Fifa World Club Cup and the Premier League.

Pickford was not booked for the challenge on Van Dijk.
