Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says the club “will wait” for Harvey Elliott after his breakthrough into the first team was cruelly interrupted by a horror injury in Sunday’s win over Leeds.

Elliott suffered the injury midway through the second half of the 3-0 win at Elland Road after being challenged from behind by Pascal Struijk, who was shown a red card for his part in the incident.

The Englishman spent last season on loan with Blackburn in the Championship but returned to Anfield and signed a new long-term contract in the summer and has started three of the Reds’ first four games this season.

“It is his ankle,” Klopp confirmed. “I heard it was dislocated and they couldn’t put it back and he is now in hospital.

“Do I want such a young boy to have this experience in his career? No. We will play football without him, but we will wait for him as well because he is a top player.

“I saw the situation. I could see his foot was not in the right place. That is why we were all shocked.”
