Source: Liverpool defender Van Dijk has ACL injury

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has suffered an ACL injury according to one media source.

Van Dijk was clattered by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the opening minutes of the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.

He was unable to continue and it was reported on Saturday evening that he - as well as Thiago - were both sent to hospital for scans.

According to beIN Sports, Van Dijk has injured his ACL - a serious issue that would lead to months of recovery time.

However, the report is yet to be confirmed by the club or any other source and Van Dijk's condition remains unclear.
