Breaking News ! Here are your Liverpool morning headlines for Sunday, 18 October. Reds request VAR review Liverpool have asked the Premier League to review two key VAR decisions during Saturday’s 2-2 derby draw with Everton at Goodison Park. The Reds were unhappy with decisions made by VAR David Coote and his assistant Lee Betts, including Jordan Pickford’s potential red-card challenge on Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson’s disallowed stoppage-time winner. Henderson’s goal was ruled out after Sadio Mane was adjudged to have strayed beyond the last man in the build-up with Liverpool keen for clarification on which of Mane’s body parts was deemed to have been in an offside position. Speaking about the Pickford incident, Klopp said : “We have no power there.

We have to ask other people about that, not me. “It’s not a challenge a goalkeeper can do in the box. If it’s not offside it’s a 100% penalty.” Fears over van Dijk’s injury Liverpool are sweating over the severity of van Dijk’s injury after the defender left the hospital on crutches following Saturday’s derby. Van Dijk was forced off after just 11 minutes following Pickford’s challenge with Klopp later admitting that it did not look good for the Dutchman.

. The 29-year-old has not missed a league game for Klopp’s side since January 2018 but there are fears he faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Liverpool are also waiting to discover the result of a scan on Thiago Alcantara’s knee after Richarlison’s red-card foul on the Spaniard. Both van Dijk and Thiago are major doubts for Liverpool’s Champions League opener against Ajax on Wednesday. Klopp ‘not surprised’ by reaction to Villa defeat Klopp has insisted he is ‘not surprised’ by Liverpool’s positive reaction to suffering a humbling 7-2 defeat by Aston Villa. The Reds may have only come away from Goodison Park with a point, but there were clear improvements to the display at Villa Park prior to the international break. "It has nothing to do with my message from two weeks ago, how they played today,” said Klopp . "These boys are exceptional. I am 100% of the time proud of being their manager and we really played an under-average game when we lost 7-2. "I'm not surprised about the reaction, that's what we wanted to see but it is still only a draw. "But the game and the performance, everyone who was with us thought it was pretty good.”
