Liverpool’s rising star Harvey Elliott suffers serious injury


Harvey Elliott, 18, looks to have suffered a horrific injury as the Liverpool youngster was stretchered off the pitch at Leeds United.

Elliott was tackled by Pascal Struijk in the second half at Elland Road and Mohamed Salah immediately signalled to the bench for help for his teammates.

It looked as though Harvey Elliott suffered an ankle or lower leg injury, as he appeared to get his foot stuck in the ground as the tackle came in and Struijk landed on his lower leg.

Struijk was sent off for the challenge, as replays of the injury to Elliott were not shown across NBC Sports’ platforms due to the horrendous nature of the impact and aftermath.
