Needless to say, the incident involving Pickford and Van Dijk sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "I don't even understand the rules of football anymore how can that not be a red card?"

A second tweeted: "Kick/punch an opponent and get away with it cause it was offside... some of these rules."

A third added: "Even if Van Dijk is offside, does that give Pickford a licence to chop Van Dijk?"
