Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling join Liverpool squad in Harvey Elliott message – Liverpool FC

Harvey Elliott’s shocking ankle injury in the 3-0 Leeds win stunned the Liverpool squad, and after that the 18-year-old’s teammates wished him a speedy recovery.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane earned the Reds a big win on Elland Road, who kept the pace at the top of the Premier League.

But an awkward duel by Pascal Struijk at the hour left Elliott writhing in pain and Salah called for urgent medical attention, with the midfielder then being pulled away.

Elliott gave a positive update on his way to the hospital, but Jürgen Klopp accepted that it was a “bad injury” after the win and revealed that his No. 67 had suffered a dislocated ankle.

The severity of Elliott’s injury is unclear at this point and the hope is that it won’t be as bad as initially feared, but either way, it’s a blow to the player and club.

It is certainly not the first serious injury Liverpool has suffered in recent seasons and the squad quickly rallied to send a direct message to Elliott on social media: “We’re all with you.”

Curtis Jones and Neco Williams are two players who are particularly close to Elliott, and the midfielder wished his “little brother” all the best:

It wasn’t just the Liverpool squad who paid tribute to the teen after the scenes on Elland Road, including Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling who put the “rivalry” aside:

Former players also joined the congratulators, with Jamie Carragher regretting three valuable points that were “overshadowed” by a “disgusting injury”:

No pro player should or would celebrate a rival injury, but it is warming to see Elliott pay tribute after a severe setback.

The youngster has had a promising start to life for the Liverpool first team, with Sunday marking his third Premier League start, and hopefully he can make a full recovery and continue his climb on Anfield.
