On beIN SPORTS, Richard Keys said: "The information that we are receiving is that he has done his anterior cruciate ligament.
"If that is the case, well I say he's done, in that incident with Jordan Pickford, he will be out for 7-8 months if that is the case."
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp issued a worrying update following the result.
"Virgil played I don't know how many games in a row, he plays with pain, but he couldn't play on," he said. "That's not good."
He also believes that his side should have been awarded a penalty for Pickford's tackle on Van Dijk.
"It was a clear penalty I saw and then we saw the flag went up. I thought they would still look at the foul but that didn't happen," he added.
"I don't want to say Jordan Pickford wanted to do it but it is not a challenge a goalie can do in the box."
