Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott sustains horrific ankle injury after strong challenge from Pascal Struijk… but Gary Neville insists referee Craig Pawson was WRONG to send Leeds defender away

  • Precocious England U21 midfielder Elliott had to be substituted after treatment
  • Mohamed Salah and Jurgen Klopp were visibly shocked by the harrowing incident
  • But expert Neville stated it was a red card based on the injury, not the tackle











Pascal Struijk of Leeds has been sent off for a poor tackle on Harvey Elliott, who saw the Liverpool star leave the field on a stretcher in agony.

At around noon in the side fight on Elland Road on Sunday afternoon, substitute Struijk challenged the 18-year-old, leaving him with a broken ankle.

The center half, who previously came in for the injured Diego Llorente, received a red card from referee Craig Pawson after a VAR check.

But Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville disagreed with the decision to send Struijk away, though he expressed his sympathy for Elliott.

He said: ‘The most important thing is the boy, but I’m not sure if it’s a red card. We’re watching it here, but we can’t show it.

“The red card is more a result of the injury than the tackle.

‘It is not good. Players who originally saw it walked away in shock. Jurgen Klopp is furious.’
