The removal of Virgil van Dijk due to injury inside the first 10 minutes of the 2-2 stalemate with Everton saw a scenario unfold that has been unprecedented for Jurgen Klopp and the Reds over the previous two Premier League seasons: a back four totally absent of the towering Dutchman’s precence.

It is not good,” Klopp said of Van Dijk’s injury.

The England No.1 connected with Van Dijk at knee height, leaving a talismanic figure for the Reds writhing on the deck.

Van Dijk was forced to leave the pitch following a cynical challenge from Jordan Pickford which was totally overlooked by the refereeing officials.

As soon as Van Dijk was withdrawn, Liverpool just didn’t look as commanding defensively.

A Liverpool team without Van Dijk has been an outcome we haven’t had to get used to in recent years given he has started in every PL match for the Reds since January 2018.

Both Van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara have since been sent to hospital for scans on potential knee injuries ahead of the trip to Amsterdam to face Ajax in the Champions League next week.
