The 18-year-old had to be stretchered off on the hour mark following a dangerous challenge by Pascal Struijk, who was sent off as a result of the tackle.

German tactician Klopp was visibly upset about the incident, and later revealed that Elliott's ankle had been dislocated.

"It is a bad injury. Ankle. I heard it was dislocated and we could put it back, he's now in hospital. He played an incredible game, an incredible player," Klopp told Sky Sports after the match.

"Now he's out. Do I want such a young boy to have this experience so early in his career? No.

"We will play without him but we will wait for him. He's a top, top player. I saw the situation, I saw his foot not in the right place, that's why we were shocked. That's it.

"Nothing important [to referee]. I am not sure it's the right moment to speak about this kind of things. It wasn't important, really."

The Reds went on to claim a 3-0 win at Elland Road thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane to extend their unbeaten start to the campaign.
