Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott suffers horror injury after tackle by Leeds United defender Pascal Struijk

Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott was sent off the pitch after a mistimed tackle from Leeds United defender Pascal Struijk. After a protracted absence due to a feared fractured ankle, the young Englishman was replaced in the 62nd minute of the game.

Struijk hindered Elliott around the midway line, and the game was soon halted as the youngster went down following a vicious tackle. Following a lengthy delay, the Leeds United player was sent out for his challenge, and Elliott was replaced by Jordan Henderson, who was stretchered off the ground to a standing ovation from both sets of fans.

Elliott used Instagram to confirm that he was awake and thank fans all across the world for their love and support.
