Van Dijk to undergo surgery on knee

Oliver Hall by Oliver Hall @besoccer_com - 0 2,601

Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk needs will undergo surgery on his knee and faces a lengthy lay-off.

Virgil van Dijk will undergo surgery on his knee after his injury during yesterday's Merseyside derby.

He was on the end of a shocking challenge from Jordan Pickford in the first half but the England goalkeeper stayed on the pitch despite checks by VAR.

He was taken to the hospital after the game for scans.

Although the time out is sure to be lengthy, there is no confirmation as to how long Liverpool will be without their star man.

Recovery from ACL injuries can often take several months, meaning that Jurgen Klopp will be without the man who has played every league game for the past two seasons.
