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.
Liverpool are understood to have submitted a complaint to the PGMOL, asking for clarification of a number of 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.
