Carlo Ancelotti: "We are really sorry" for injuring Virgil van Dijk

Carlo Ancelotti:

Prior to that, however, Van Dijk had fouled James, who now appears to be a serious doubt for Everton's game at St Mary's as a result. After the game, scans revealed that the player suffered an ACL injury, which will sideline him for months and can possibly end his football season.

Amid the ongoing discussion regarding how Liverpool will cope without the injured Virgil van Dijk, Jamie Carragher claimed that his former club would have to pull out all the stops to sign a new centre-half in the January transfer window.

The Holland global will be a huge miss for Liverpool, with many already suggesting that the reigning Premier League champions will struggle to compete on multiple fronts without the 29-year-old.

And the Sportsmail Understood that the accident is nearly certainly one of a number of incidents that were reviewed by Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the body that oversees refereeing in professional English football, at an annual meeting held in the middle of the season.

Everton will also be without Richarlison, who begins a three-match suspension for his red card against Liverpool. The way Pickford went in was completely stupid.

Ancelotti's opinion is not shared by everyone, with Liverpool legend Graeme Souness among those to have condemned Pickford for a rush of blood that has become all too common in the 26-year-old keeper's game. Richarlison on Thiago was also a nasty one. This is football and unfortunately you can be injured.

"It makes it harder that they will not be punished".

"Of course we are upset", said Wijnaldum at a pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Ajax. It's different from normal.

"Everyone still has a really bad feeling about it".

Liverpool and Everton had played out a 2-2 draw in the Premier League on Saturday. I'll be there as much as I possibly can for him, I'm sure the lads will do the same.

Pickford escaped any retrospective disciplinary action.

These Liverpool supporters absolutely loved Gini Wijnaldum's honesty when discussing Everton's foul play in the Merseyside derby. Virgil van Dijk knows this.
