Klopp's update on Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara injuries

Everton vs Liverpool- Virgil van Dijk Injury

Everton vs Liverpool- Virgil van Dijk Injury

There are fears that Virgil van Dijk could be out for a while after the Dutch global came off injured in the 2-2 draw against Everton on Saturday.

But Southampton were not to be denied and Jannik Vestergaard bludgeoned home an added-time equaliser for Saints from a free-kick that Chelsea failed to clear.

But the pivotal moment in the match came when Van Dijk was on the receiving end of a unsafe late lunge from Pickford early in the game, which forced the Dutchman off.

Everton's Brazil forward Richarlison was then sent off in the 90th minute after a wild challenge on Thiago Alcantara.

However, the drama did not end there as VAR deemed Mane to be offside as he provided the cross for Henderson, despite television replays proving inconclusive.

Everton remain top of the table on 13 points, three ahead of second-placed Liverpool.

Liverpool thought they had won it in stoppage time when Pickford could not keep out Jordan Henderson's shot - but in a finish to match the chaotic nature of the game, Mane was adjudged to be offside after a lengthy wait for the VAR decision. "The only situation I saw back is the Henderson goal and I didn't see offside".

Pep Guardiola came up against his former assistant Mikel Arteta at The Etihad and perhaps not surprisingly it was a tactical encounter won by a calm finish from Sterling. "We kept it tight and compact and deserved the win", said Sterling.

Arsenal created several openings in the first half but twice City keeper Ederson was alert and quick off his line, foiling Bakary Sako and then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He is so good.

Arsenal were left to rue two huge opportunities late in the first-half as they were denied by City goalkeeper Ederson.

Bruno Fernandes made amends for missing a penalty by scoring a brilliant go-ahead goal for Manchester United in its come-from-behind 4-1 win at Newcastle.

United were back on level terms midway through the first half when captain Harry Maguire met Juan Mata's corner with an unstoppable header, just days after the misery of a red card for England against Denmark.

Chelsea looked to be in total control after cruising into a 2-0 lead against Southampton at Stamford Bridge, courtesy of two goals from summer signing Timo Werner.

The Germany striker should have had a third in the 40th minute but he blazed the ball over the bar and three minutes later Southampton pulled one back when Danny Ings rounded keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to score.

The hosts struck back immediately with a well worked goal, the influential Werner crossing for Kai Havertz to earn his own first Premier League goal with a simple tap-in.

"We can do better..."

"We need time to grow as a team".
