Van Dijk has been investigated for a suspected knee injury when he fell victim to a horror challenge from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in Saturday’s 2-2 Merseyside Derby tie at Goodison.
The Dutchman had a long treatment on the field before limping off after just 11 minutes. VAR decided not to punish Pickford for the X-rated tackle as Van Dijk had been classified as offside during construction.
While there have been rumors of the severity of the damage to the player’s right knee, Liverpool are still waiting for the results of the scans.
But the Reds fear that Van Dijk, who has not missed a Premier League game since January 2018, could be out for a long time.
The Reds are also waiting for news of scans on Thiago Alcantara after the midfielder was late fouled by Everton’s striker Richarlison, who was subsequently given a red card.
Thiago played the remaining minutes but complained of discomfort after the final whistle and is said to be swollen on his right knee.
