[Video & Photos] Liverpool's van Dijk forced off after Pickford horror tackle

Richarlison was shown a straight red card in the 90th minute of the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park, having lunged in on Liverpool playmaker Thiago, who was making his first Premier League start. Pickford leapt to his right to make a stunning save from Trent Alexander-Arnold's free-kick before Mane then had a similar chance to the opening goal only to this time skew Robertson's cross wide.

Liverpool suffered a blow eight minutes later when defender Van Dijk went down and had to be substituted after a reckless challenge from Everton keeper Jordan Pickford. "The picture I saw is no offside, but it was offside because somebody decided it".

Sai dai Everton wadda ta lashe dukkanin wasanninta bakwai na baya-bayan nan, ta fusata tare da farke ƙwallon yayin da Michael Keane ya sara ƙwallo cikin ragar Adrián bayan James Rodríguez ya kwaso kwana. At the time of writing, the score is still level at 1-1.

Everton remained top of the table on 13 points, three ahead of Liverpool, after an incident-packed end to the 237th Merseyside derby.

This game looked to be there for the taking for either side, but both teams came out in the second half looking nervous and tentative. We were clearly dominant against a side that is full of confidence.

"We lost one player in a situation where VAR was not involved with Virgil and maybe another one in the red card situation and scored a legitimate goal which didn't count - so obviously not our day but the performance was the performance I wanted to see".

Investigators said that over 10,000 tips, considered parolees, and convicted sex offenders were chased as possible suspects. His attorneys have previously claimed Nice deceived the judge to get on the jury for the high profile case.

"Pickford kicks him completely out of the game", fumed Klopp.

"It was probably the best away game since I am at Liverpool at Goodison".

The England global becomes the first Everton player to score in the first five league games since Tommy Lawton in 1938-39.

Alexander-Arnold's cross was cut out by Yerry Mina but broke to the Egpytian on his left and he arrowed a shot into the far corner for his sixth goal in five appearances this season.

Joel Matip nearly scored a third from a corner but Pickford produced a stunning save to keep it out.

That tackle ended the Holland captain's afternoon and Klopp admits the injury is "not good", while the challenge which did result in a red card being shown to Richarlison also appears to have put Thiago Alcantara on the sidelines. However, after a lengthy VAR consultation, Mane was deemed to be offside by the finest of margins.
