1 Mins read

The Football Association has confirmed that Everton goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford will not face disciplinary action, following his collision with Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk during Saturday’s Merseyside derby.

Video Assistant Referee (VAR) reviewed the incident and decided not to award the Reds a penalty, because Van Dijk was deemed offside.

VAR also concluded that Pickford’s challenge was not worthy of a red card.

The Liverpool are understood to have submitted a complaint to the PGMOL, 

asking for clarification of several decisions during the derby

However, the FA will only consider retrospective punishments for incidents not seen by match officials on the pitch or at VAR headquarters at Stockley Park.

Van Dijk is set to undergo knee surgery after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage in the collision.
