Sad day for all of Liverpool. Despite Leeds United’s solid 3-0 home win, one of their top youth talents suffered a serious injury that will keep him off the pitch for several months.
As the 57th minute ran, Harvey Elliott received a long pass down the right and started at full speed to initiate a counter, but reaching the middle of the court he was brought down by Pascal Struijk.
Although it was not a disqualifying entry, far from it, the young squad got entangled with the opponent’s legs and fell to the grass in a spectacular way. He immediately grabbed his left leg and teammate Mohame Salah yelled to stop the game for medical attention.
After several minutes, the 18-year-old was removed on oxygen and on a stretcher, as fans on Ellan Road waved him off in applause. Fortunately, the same player reported on social networks assuring that he was relatively well and was already thinking about his extensive recovery.
“Thanks for the messages guys. Road to recovery, “he said in an Instagram story.
Regarding what happened to him, several English media indicate that it was a complicated injury to his left ankle from which he could recover between 6-8 months.
Unfortunate news for the midfielder who was beginning to gain the trust of Jürgen Klopp and who this Sunday just became the youngest footballer in the history of Liverpool who added three consecutive starts.
He passed the scare after the serious injury suffered by Harvey Elliot. The player brings calm from their networks. Prompt recovery for Liverpool’s young talent 🙏🏻🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/FrkKk8I4ZW
