So this horrific tackle is not a red card because Virgil van Dijk’s elbow was slightly offside.
The state of football, the game is slowly dying.
Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara have gone for scans on suspected knee injuries following the incidents involving Jordan Pickford and Richarlison.
Should Jordan Pickford have been sent off for this two-footed lunge on Virgil van Dijk? 😳🟥
Holy shit, Van Dijk ACL.. they need to put Pickford into protective custody
Even if Van Dijk is offside, does that give Pickford a licence to chop Van Dijk?
Information on Virgil van Dijk‘s injury is that he’s done his ACL, and will be out for the best part of 7/8 months. #awlfc [bein sports]
#LFC request a review into the application of VAR during the Merseyside derby from the Premier League over the failure to scrutinise Jordan Pickford’s challenge on Virgil van Dijk + clarity over aspects of the Sadio Mane offside call
Anxious wait for #LFC to discover the extent of the injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Thiago as they undergo scans following the derby at Goodison.
If you’re celebrating Van Dijk’s injury you genuinely have problems.
Van Dijk sofreu uma lesão gravíssima no ligamento do joelho e deve ficar fora dos gramados de 7 a 8 meses. Força, monstro! [Fonte: BeIN Sports]
Virgil van Dijk out Injured for the next 8 months? Wow. If I were Jordan Pickford, then I’m hiring body guards to watch my back 24/7 for the next decade. He will not be making it out of the hood alive.
David Coote was the man on VAR for Everton v Liverpool today.
He was reportedly so distracted by trying to work out if van Dijk was onside or not that he didn't even bother to review the 'tackle' from Pickford afterwards.
Ladies and gentleman... The Premier League™ 😅
Van Dijk out for 8 months. If City remain inconsistent this title is wide open. In fact, if Jose could get this Spurs side consistent and Bale is anywhere near the player he was.....
🚨 BREAKING: Virgil van Dijk has suffered an ACL injury & is set to be out for 7 to 8 months according to @beINSPORTS
Stay strong, @VirgilvDijk
URGENTE - ÚLTIMO MOMENTO: según fuentes de Bein, van Dijk se rompió los ligamentos en el choque con Jordan Pickford. ¡De 7 a 8 meses afuera!
Virgil van Dijk offside by the new point of handball on the arm, rather than the armpit.
Last season, this would have been onside.
Note the red line doesn't go to the elbow. It carries through and that's the calculation point.
Thiago and Van Dijk both requiring scans after today's game. Not good at all. Two major players.
L'agression de Pickford, qui ne prend pas de rouge car Van Dijk était hors-jeu 😯
Le défenseur est sorti sur blessure 😰
Según informan desde Bein Sports, Van Dijk sufrió la rotura de ligamentos de la rodilla derecha tras esta acción de Jordan Pickford https://t.co/DGKlsunqDc
Just a reminder that Anthony Martial will miss 3.5 games for a live tap on Erik Lamela’s chin and Jordan Pickford will go unpunished for kamikazeeing Virgil Van Dijk’s knee #MUFC
The VAR did review Jordan Pickford's tackle on Virgil Van Dijk but decided it was not a red card, The Athletic has been told.
Wow! Hope it’s not true. Reports that van Dijk out 7-8 months after that stupid tackle
Not sure how VAR came to the conclusion that Mané was offside today and how the video assistant never deemed Pickfords assault on Van Dijk to be a sending off. Cowardly challenge, very poor
Just want to wish Van Dijk a speedy recovery. I take no pleasure out of the injury he sustained. Classy defender!!!
[#PL🇬🇧] 🔴 BREAKING !
