Defender Pascal Struijk will serve a three-match ban after Leeds United lost their appeal against his red card

during the defeat against Liverpool.

Struijk was dismissed for a challenge on Harvey Elliott that left the Reds midfielder with a dislocated ankle.

Elliott, 18, had surgery on Tuesday but could play again this season.

Struijk, 22, will miss games against Newcastle United and West Ham United in the Premier League and

Fulham in the Carabao Cup.

He will be available again for the league game against Watford at Elland Road on 2 October.

Struijk apologised to Elliott for the challenge on social media, saying he was “gutted” and “never meant

for it to happen”.

Elliott replied to an Instagram post to say the centre-back had nothing to apologise for, describing the incident

as a “freak accident”.

Pascal Struijk apologised to Harvey Elliott for the tackle early in the second half at Elland Road.

Elliott’s team-mates were clearly upset by the seriousness of the injury at the time and say they will now rally

around the youngster as he recovers.

“What happened with Harvey made me sad. It’s difficult to deal with that when you’re on the pitch,” said Reds’

goalkeeper Alisson.

“All the players have a big role to support him, we need to do our best in this time.”

Meanwhile, Leeds have confirmed that they have submitted an appeal against Struijk’s dismissal.

On Monday, Elliott replied to an Instagram post to say that the 22-year-old centre-back had nothing to apologise for.

He wrote: “Wasn’t his fault whatsoever! Neither was it a red card, just a freak accident, but these things happen

in football. I’ll be back stronger 100%. Thanks for all the support.”

Elliott posted an image of himself in hospital then.
