Leeds Defender Struijk SENT OFF For Nasty Tackle On Liverpool Starlet Elliott

39

Leeds' Pascal Struijk has been sent off for a poor tackle on Harvey Elliott which saw the Liverpool starlet leave the pitch on a stretcher in agony. The England youth international was brought down just shy of the hour mark at Elland Road and required extensive medical attention from staff on the scene before he was removed from the pitch. His opponent was dimissed with a striaght red card by referee Craig Pawson following a VAR review. With Liverpool leading 2-0 in West Yorkshire thanks to goals either side of half-time from Mohamed Salah - who brought up a century of Premier League strikes - and Fabinho, Elliott set off down the right flank in pursuit of a long ball. Leeds defender Struijk tracked him down close to the halfway mark and came in with a low flying challenge that left the Reds starlet on the ground. Players from both sides waved on medical staff from the technical areas directly in front of the incident, near coaches Jurgen Klopp and Marcelo Bielsa, before referee Pawson had even brought play to a halt. Medics continued to attend to Elliott while players from both sides mingled, before VAR dismissed Struijk for his challenge - with television broadcasts studiously avoiding any replay of the incident.
