Liverpool Dressing Room React To Van Dijk Injury In Everton Draw

The Liverpool dressing room labeled Jordan Pickford’s horror tackle on Virgil van Dijk “shocking” during the half-time break.

That’s according to Andy Robertson, who admits he never saw the challenge personally, but was left in no doubt of its severity after speaking with his team-mates.

Van Dijk was clattered by Toffees shot-stopper Pickford just 10 minutes into the Merseyside derby on Saturday as he competed for a ball in the Everton box.

Van Dijk attempted to play on but was forced to make way moments later, and was replaced by England international Joe Gomez.

Robertson described the Liverpool dressing room atmosphere at half time, saying: “I never saw it [the challenge]. But the lads at half-time said it was a shocking challenge, so that’s two they’ve done us with.”

Van Dijk was taken to hospital following the match to receive treatment on his knee.
