    Leeds United make Pascal Struijk's red card appeal after horror Harvey Elliott injury

    Struijk's red card proved to be a controversial decision after his tackle caused Liverpool starlet Elliott to dislocate his ankle

    Leeds United have reportedly submitted an appeal to the FA in hope of seeing Pascal Struijk's red card rescinded after Harvey Elliott 's horror injury.

    Elliott dislocated his ankle after Struijk lunged at him in the 58th minute of the teams' Premier League clash at Elland Road on Sunday.

    The Liverpool midfielder may now faces being sidelined well into next year, while Struijk faces suspension of a red card in what proved to be a controversial decision.

    Injured Elliott came to the defence of Leeds United's Struijk as debate over the red card decision spread after the game, saying in an Instagram post: "[It] wasn’t his fault whatsoever.

    "Neither was it a red card just a freak accident but these things happen in football."

    Former Premier League official Mark Clattenburg agreed that the tackle was not worthy of a sending off and said on Monday that he believes Leeds have a good chance of winning the appeal.

    "Remember the foul by Heung-min Son on Andre Gomes, for which the Tottenham Hotspur striker was sent off. Spurs appealed that red card and won," Clattenburg wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.

    "Leeds United are likewise bound to lodge an appeal after Struijk was dismissed for his challenge on Elliott on Sunday.

    "We haven't seen all of the replays because of the severity of the injury to Elliott. From the angle we were shown in real time, however, the challenge from Struijk didn't look a bad one."
