Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp provided an early update on Harvey Elliott’s well-being on Sunday night after the midfielder was removed on a stretcher with a serious injury during the club’s meeting with Leeds United.

Reds cruise

Klopp and company. he got his Premier League campaign underway again just a short time ago.

In the club’s first outing at the back of the international break, Liverpool made the trip to Elland Road, eager to join Chelsea and Manchester United within ten points of the English top flight table.

And, when all was said and done in Yorkshire, this is precisely what the visitors achieved.

An absolutely dominant display finally culminated with the Reds emerging on the right side from a 3-0 scoreline, to make three wins of four to open the season.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for the night, placing home from the Trent Alexander-Arnold cross to engrave his name in the Premier League history books:

Next on target was Fabinho early in the second half, before Sadio Mane completed a comfortable night of work for Liverpool with a third in injury time.

‘Massive pain’

However, as described above, it was not the one-sided nature of the 90 minutes on Elland Road that actually turned out to be the main talking point stemming from tonight’s action.

Instead, this came in the form of a serious injury suffered by Liverpool star Harvey Elliott.

After a challenge in the middle of the park left the 18-year-old grounded and in obvious pain, medical personnel quickly flooded the field.

Elliott, in turn, was repaired with an oxygen mask, before being transported on a stretcher from procedures to rapturous applause from crowds both at home and abroad.

Pascal Struijk, the man unfortunately responsible for Elliott’s injury, was subsequently sent to an early bathroom in the back of a VAR checkpoint, but the Leeds boss was quick to assure that there was absolutely no malice behind the defender’s challenge. versatile:

Amid suggestions that an appeal might even be launched due to the fact that, with the reruns airing, Struijk’s challenge seemed downright innocuous, Bielsa continued:
