Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk’s knee injury is “not good”, says the champions’ manager Jurgen Klopp.

Van Dijk was hurt in a rash challenge by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford in the first half of Saturday’s 2-2 draw.

The Netherlands defender, 29, could not continue and will have a scan, along with Thiago Alcantara, who also suffered a knee injury.

“Virgil played I don’t know how many games in a row, he plays with pain, but he couldn’t play on,” said Klopp.

“That’s not good.”

Liverpool’s claims for a penalty from the incident were turned down as Van Dijk was ruled to be offside before England number one Pickford clattered into him.

“It was a clear penalty I saw and then we saw the flag went up. I thought they would still look at the foul but that didn’t happen,” said Klopp.

“I don’t want to say Jordan Pickford wanted to do it but it is not a challenge a goalie can do in the box.”
