Liverpool star set for 8 months on sidelines after injury against Everton

Virgil van Dijk has reportedly been ruled out of action for the most part of this season after picking a terrible injury in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Everton in the first Merseyside derby this season.

A goal each from Michael Keane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelled out Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah’s strikes as they both shared the spoils after the regulation period.

However, the Reds dropped more than just points as they lost their influential defender Virgil van Dijk to a terrible injury in the game.

And he could be out for the most part of the 2020-21 season which could, in turn, have a toll on how Jurgen Klopp lines up going forward.

Give Me Sport reports that the Dutchman has undergone a scan after the game and it was discovered that he damaged his anterior cruciate ligament.

The 29-year-old was injured by the Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford after clashing with the defender during his attempt at goal.

And he could not survive the attack as he was substituted from the meeting in the 11th minute as Joseph Gomez took to the pitch for the remainder of the match.

The Anfield outfit is out to defend the Premier League title they won for the first time in 30 years last campaign, while they also redeem their image in the Champions League this time around.
