Liverpool teenager Harvey Elliott was stretchered off in their 3-0 win at Leeds United on Sunday.
Marcus Rashford was quick to wish the Liverpool youngster a speedy recovery after he was stretchered off with what appeared to be a serious injury against Leeds.
So serious that Sky Sports decided not to show a replay of the tackle.
Leeds’ Pascal Struijk was sent off for a forceful tackle on Elliott but I didn’t see anything malicious in it.
It’s hard to pass judgement seeing as replays of the incident are scarce, though one would think Leeds have an argument in terms of appealing the decision to ensure Struijk doesn’t miss their upcoming matches in the league.
Liverpool goalscorer Mohamed Salah was close to the tackle and he immediately waved the medical team onto the field as the severity of the injury became instantly clear. As a result, the midfielder required oxygen and received a standing ovation from both sets of supporters as he departed.
Rashford followed up by sending a supportive tweet to Elliott.
Ahhhh man rivalry aside that looks really nasty, no one wants to see that, thoughts are with you Harvey @LFC

“Ahhhh man rivalry aside that looks really nasty, no one wants to see that, thoughts are with you Harvey,” the United star tweeted.
Goals from Mo Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane were enough to give Liverpool three points at Elland Road.
We echo Rashford’s message.
