Klopp Sweating On Van Dijk And Thiago Injuries As He Await Scan Results

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool are waiting to assess the extent of injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Everton.

Van Dijk was forced off the field in the first 10 minutes after suffering a knee problem following a challenge from Blues goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Thiago, meanwhile, found himself after a heavy lunge from Richarlison which ended in a red card for the Everton striker at the last moment of regulation time.

Klopp told his post-match press conference as cited by Sports Central: “When I left the pitch, Thiago told me in the red card situation with Richarlison he thinks he got injured. We will see if it’s true or not, but if he felt like this then we need to have a look.

The manager added on Van Dijk: “I don’t know [how serious it is], I don’t know, but it is not good. “Virgil played for us I don’t know how many games in a row. He plays with pain, he plays with pretty much everything, but he couldn’t play on. That’s not good.

However, if what the report in the media is something to go by, then Liverpool might be without the defensive star for a long time, which may hamper their title defense.
