As shown in a tweet from BT Sport, the England international put in a rather dangerous tackle against Virgil Van Dijk, which forced the central defender to go off early on in the game with an injury.

Should Pickford be sold by Everton?

The pictures shown in the tweet make it pretty clear that Pickford’s challenge was indeed dangerous, but VAR did not suggest to Michael Oliver to act upon it, as the Netherlands international had been offside in the build-up.
