Liverpool duo of Virgil Van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara have both been rushed to the hospital in the United Kingdom for scans to be conducted after sustaining injuries against Everton.
The Premier League game was a tough one in which Liverpool had the chance to win it after captain Jordan Henderson scored at the death, but it was ruled for an offside.
Defender Virgil Dijk played only ten minutes in the clash against Everton before he was taken out after bad tackle from goalkeeper Pickford.
The England international was lucky not to be send out of the game for clattering on Virgil Dijk in the encounter.
Ten minutes to the end of the epic clash, Richarlison was sent off for a reckless late tackle on Thiago Alcantara.
However, the former Bayern Munich midfielder managed to finish the game but has reportedly suffered swelling on his leg according to the report on UK Mirror.
Liverpool manager explained below.
“The red card from Richarlison, it’s not only a red card for Everton it’s a massive foul on Thiago as well.
“Thiago has a proper knock there, he has ice now, we don’t know what he has, it looks not good, to be honest.
“It’s not good. Virgil plays with pain but he couldn’t play on. Not good.”
