Harvey Elliott has been discharged from hospital after suffering a dislocated ankle in Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Leeds on Sunday.

Elliott will undergo surgery in the coming days

The 18-year-old was in severe pain after going down under a challenge from Leeds’ Pascal Struijk.

Pascal Struijk was sent off in the 60th minute following a VAR review into the incident.

Play was halted for several minutes as Elliott received treatment from Liverpool’s medical staff.

The youngster was taken off on a stretcher and replaced by Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

Struijk had come on as a substitute for Leeds in place of Diego Llorente.

Llorente was taken off in the 33rd minute due to an injury.

Away fans sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” as Harvey Elliott left the pitch while sections of the home supporters applauded.

A number of the teenager’s team-mates, including Mohamed Salah and Alisson Becker, were visibly distressed.
