Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott was taken to hospital after suffering a horror ankle injury during the Reds’ 3-0 victory over Leeds United on Sunday afternoon. The teenager’s ankle turned following a tackle by Pascal Struijk, who was sent off for the challenge. 

Elliott dribbled down the touchline with the ball on the hour mark and was tackled from behind by Struijk. Reds winger Mohamed Salah immediately noticed the severity of the injury and called for the physio to attend to Elliott immediately. 

“It is a bad injury. Ankle, I heard it was dislocated and they couldn’t put it back. He’s in hospital so now we have to wait,” Klopp told Sky Sports. 

“He played again an incredible match. He’s an incredible player. Now he’s out. Do I want such a young boy to experience this so early in his career? No. 

“But now it’s the case and we have to be there and we will be there. 

“We will play football without him but we will wait for him because he is a top, top, top player.”
