While summer signing Thiago had a nasty coming together with Richarlison in the 2-2 thriller.

Jordan Henderson looked to have given the champions a last-gasp win only for it to be ruled out by VAR.

Richarlison saw red for his tackle just minutes before Henderson’s goal was chalked off.

Speaking of England No1 Pickford’s challenge on Van Dijk, boss Jurgen Klopp said:

“In the game, it was pretty quick. For me, it was a clear penalty what I saw and then obviously we saw that the flag went up, so offside.

“I still thought it’s worth to have a look on the foul but that didn’t happen.

“We have no power there, we just sit here and now you discuss it with me.

“We have to ask other people about that.

“What can I say? I don’t want to say Jordan Pickford wanted to do it but it’s, of course, not a challenge how a goalie can do it in the box because there’s another player.

“If it’s not offside, it’s 100 per cent a penalty.”

And commenting on Thiago, the German added: “I leave the pitch and Thiago tells me that in the red-card situation with Richarlison he thinks he got injured.

“We will see if it’s true or not. If a player felt like this, we need to have a look.”
