“Absolutely gutted,” “Incredibly cruel” – Liverpool fans react to Harvey Elliott horror injury

Liverpool won 3-0 away to Leeds on Sunday afternoon, but supporters could only really focus on a shocking injury for Harvey Elliott.

Leeds 0-3 Liverpool

Premier League, Elland Road
September 12, 2021

Goals: Salah 20′, Fabinho 50′, Mane 90′

Sent-off: Struijk 60′

The Reds faced a potentially testing trip to Elland Road, as Jurgen Klopp and his players reconvened after the international break.

Liverpool were superb throughout the opening 45 minutes, with Mohamed Salah finishing off a well-worked team move to take a 1-0 lead into half-time.

Fabinho added a second shortly after the interval, but the game was ruined when Elliott suffered what appeared to be a broken leg and Pascal Struijk was subsequently sent off for the tackle.

In the end, Liverpool saw out the victory with relative ease – Sadio Mane put the icing on the cake in stoppage time – but a positive result was tainted by an extremely sad incident.

A bittersweet victory.

Reds fans showed their love for Elliott on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.
