Leeds 0-3 Liverpool LIVE! Elliott injury - Premier League match stream, latest score and goal updates today

Leeds United vs Liverpool - LIVE!

Liverpool will be looking to keep pace with the early Premier League leaders as they travel to Elland Road to take on Leeds this afternoon.

The Reds know that victory will see them go level on points with Chelsea and Manchester United, after both made it three wins from their opening four games on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are also unbeaten but failed to break down a Chelsea side that played the entire second half with ten men in their clash just before the international break.

They have been boosted by the availability of Brazilian pair Alisson Becker and Fabinho after the country’s federation dropped their request to Fifa to issue a five-day ban for players not joining up with the squad because of potential quarantine restrictions upon their return.

Leeds, meanwhile, are yet to pick up their first victory of the season and start the day just one place and one point outside the relegation zone.

FT: Leeds 0-3 Liverpool

18:28 , Malik Ouzia

An excellent Liverpool performance, but one overshadowed by that injury to a terrific young player.

GOAL! Leeds 0-3 Liverpool | Sadio Mane 90+2'

18:21 , Malik Ouzia

Typical.

He’s missed an absolute hatful but Sadio Mane is finally on the scoresheet with a corking effort into the far corner on the turn.

18:20 , Malik Ouzia

90+1 mins: There’ll be eight added minutes, largely because of that injury.

18:18 , Malik Ouzia

88 mins: It just has not been Mane’s day. Again he’s galloping free from the left after a great knock from Henderson, but again he dallies and eventually sees his block deflected behind.

18:12 , Malik Ouzia

83 mins: Brilliant effort!

Patrick Bamford nicks it off Thiago just inside the Liverpool half but looks up sees the whole back four in tact and with no support decides to try and lob Alisson from miles out. The ‘keeper is backpedaling and manages to help it over the bar.

18:11 , Malik Ouzia

82 mins: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on for Liverpool, with Jota the man to make way.

18:11 , Malik Ouzia

81 mins: Sadio Mane could’ve had a hatful. It’s more good play from Salah to feed Jota and then he slots Mane in but he’s lacking a bit of conviction again and is denied by Ayling’s block as he checks back onto his left foot.

18:05 , Malik Ouzia

76 mins: Big chances at both ends. Salah sends Mane in behind with a superb outside of the boot pass but his teammate’s touch is heavy and he’s eventually closed down.

Leeds break and Raphinha beats the offside trap but has to wait for support and Bamford can’t divert his cross beyond Alisson at close-quarters.

18:04 , Malik Ouzia

75 mins: You wouldn’t know Leeds are a man light here. They’ve been about as competitive as at any point in the game.

18:01 , Malik Ouzia

71 mins: Harvey Elliott was at least able to applaud the crowd as he was carried off, being given oxygen.

17:57 , Malik Ouzia

68 mins: On comes the Welshman for his debut, with Jack Harrison the man to make way.

17:56 , Malik Ouzia

67 mins: As you’d expect, that incident has sucked a bit of the life out of this one. The home crowd are trying to get things going again. Dan James is imminent.

17:53 , Malik Ouzia

63 mins: Elliott is stretchered away and gets warm applause from around the ground. Jordan Henderson is now on - and it sounds as if that change was already going to happen. Gutting for the youngster.

Red card!

17:50 , Malik Ouzia

60 mins: Pascal Struijk has been sent off for that challenge. As I say, we’ve not been show a replay because of the graphic nature of the injury so I can’t really offer much of a verdict. The Leeds man looks gutted. Elliott is still receiving treatment.

17:49 , Malik Ouzia

59 mins: Oh this looks horrible. Struijk lunges in on Elliott to stop a Liverpool break and immediately it’s apparent that the youngster is in trouble. Mo Salah is the closest man in attendance and waves the physio on urgently before covering his face and walking away.

VAR is having a look. We’ve not seen a replay which tells you all you need to know about the injury.

17:47 , Malik Ouzia

58 mins: Liverpool have just slipped off it a touch since the second goal and Jordan Henderson is being readied.

17:44 , Malik Ouzia

55 mins: Good response from Leeds. Dallas does for Elliott with a clever turn and his low cross is only sliced up in the air by Van Dijk but Roberts can’t get any power on his header and Alisson claims comfortably.

GOAL! Leeds 0-2 Liverpool | Fabinho 50'

17:39 , Malik Ouzia

Finally, the breathing space Liverpool deserve.

It’s a pretty scrappy goal, Van Dijk nodding Alexander-Arnold’s corner down into the six-yard box and Fabinho sees one effort blocked by Bamford but the ball breaks back to him and he pokes home.

17:39 , Malik Ouzia

49 mins: What a block!

Sadio Mane is bearing down on goal and as he goes to shoot the ball deflects away to Salah, who looks to have an open goal until Struijk makes a sensational last-ditch challenge.

KICK-OFF!

17:34 , Malik Ouzia

A change for the hosts at the break - Tyler Roberts is on for Rodrigo.

17:32 , Malik Ouzia

Right then, the teams are just on their way back out to get things back underway. I’ll be stunned if we don’t see more goals.

Here’s how Mo Salah joined the Premier League’s hundred club...

HT: Leeds 0-1 Liverpool

17:18 , Malik Ouzia

Cracking first half. Mo Salah’s goal is the difference.

17:15 , Malik Ouzia

44 mins: What a chance for an equaliser, right before half-time. Luke Ayling gets caught in two minds as he steams in at the back post and between deciding whether to head it or volley, he ends up cushioning over the bar off his thigh.

17:12 , Malik Ouzia

41 mins: Lots of conversation between Alexander-Arnold and Salah as they stand over it but it’s the former who takes and whips it straight into the wall.

17:12 , Malik Ouzia

40 mins: Cooper leaves a bit of a late one on Jota which the referee initially seems to let go before bringing it back for a Liverpool free-kick right on the edge of the box.

17:08 , Malik Ouzia

36 mins: This game is just ridiculously open. Harvey Elliott somehow has about 30 yards of space inside the Leeds half but it comes to nothing.

17:04 , Malik Ouzia

33 mins: That foul is pretty much Llorente’s final act. He goes down clutching his hamstring and Pascal Struijk is summoned from the bench.

17:03 , Malik Ouzia

31 mins: How it’s only 1-0 I do not know. Mane is the latest to go close, firing wide from Salah’s lay-off.

17:02 , Malik Ouzia

30 mins: Better from Leeds as Bamford again runs in behind, controls on his chest and then lays off to Rodrigo, who tries to return the pass with a clever reverse but Bamford isn’t expecting it and his touch is loose.

Meanwhile, Llorente joins his centre-back partner in the book for a drag back on Jota.

16:58 , Malik Ouzia

27 mins: All Reds. Now it’s Harvey Elliott, shimmying across the box and denied first by Cooper’s block and then by Meslier’s save.

16:58 , Malik Ouzia

26 mins: Massive chance, Liverpool are rampant. Jota dances down the byline, Mane’s movement in the middle is superb, but the Portuguese’s cut-back is a little behind him and he can only divert it over with the goal gaping.

16:57 , Malik Ouzia

25 mins: Goal disallowed!

This is poor really, from Salah. He’s got all the time in the world to get back onside but doesn’t bother. The play is allowed to go on initially as he collects Alexander-Arnold’s pass and crosses for Thiago to head in at the far post before the flag eventually is raised.

16:55 , Malik Ouzia

24 mins: Leeds have got to to be careful here because having had that little spell of pressure the goal has swung the momentum back Liverpool’s way and they look sharp. Salah and Mane have both been excellent.

GOAL! Leeds 0-1 Liverpool | Mo Salah 20'

16:51 , Malik Ouzia

Mo Salah’s 100th Premier League goal!

It’s a cracking team goal, too, Matip heavily involved after charging forward and playing a smart one-two. The big centre-half then feeds Alexander-Arnold outside him and from there there’s only one outcome - a perfect ball across goal and Salah can’t miss from a couple of yards out.

16:50 , Malik Ouzia

18 mins: Good little spell here for Leeds, who are winning the ball back very quickly and keeping Liverpool under the pump. It’s got the home crowd up.

16:46 , Malik Ouzia

15 mins: And now Fabinho joins Cooper in the book, diving in a little late on Rodrigo.

16:45 , Malik Ouzia

14 mins: It’s a really open game, as you’d expect. Leeds break again and Phillips almost has Bamford away but there’s a touch too much on the pass.

16:44 , Malik Ouzia

12 mins: Liam Cooper is the first man into the book as he’s spun by Mane and has to drag the Senegalese back. Long old game on a ticket now for the Leeds skipper.

16:42 , Malik Ouzia

11 mins: Great strength from Mane to shrug Phillips off it and then turn on the edge of the box but his low strike takes a nick off Llorente and flies wide.

16:39 , Malik Ouzia

7 mins: Some ball, this.

Alexander-Arnold gets in ahead of Harrison and whips a terrific delivery across the face of goal but Jota is on his heels and can’t get the touch that would have turned it in.

16:36 , Malik Ouzia

5 mins: What a chance!

Raphinha stands two men up and lays inside for Rodrigo, who has so much time and space in the centre of the box, but he takes a touch and lashes straight at Alisson, who beats it away.

16:35 , Malik Ouzia

3 mins: Luke Ayling pings one over the top for newly-capped Patrick Bamford to run onto but he lashes wide on the bounce and the flag is eventually raised anyway.

KICK-OFF!

16:31 , Malik Ouzia

We are up and running...

16:25 , Malik Ouzia

A cracking atmosphere at Elland Road. A big cry of “Yorkshire! Yorkshire!” goes up. Not long now.

16:16 , Malik Ouzia

A big boost for Liverpool to have this man available today, after all the shenanigans around Brazil’s clash with Argentina during the international break. Leeds also benefit from the dropped complaint by Brazil that I mentioned earlier on, with Raphinha able to play.

Just the one change to the Leeds side this afternoon as Junior Firpo returns following his Covid-enforced absence. Pascal Struijk is the man to make way.

15:40 , Malik Ouzia

So, Liverpool are pretty much as expected in attack and in defence but a slight suprise in midfield as Harvey Elliott’s run in the side continues and Jordan Henderson has to settle for a place on the bench.

Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho for the base of the trio in the middle of the park.

Leeds: Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Firpo; Phillips; James, Dallas, Raphinha, Harrison; Bamford

Liverpool team news

14:53 , Malik Ouzia

Roberto Firmino will miss out after suffering a hamstring injury that forced him to come off during the first half of the match with Chelsea.

Fellow Brazilians Alisson and can now feature against Leeds at Elland Road on Sunday, after Brazil decided on Friday night not to push for their Premier League players who did not report for international duty to be banned for this weekend.

Harvey Elliott has been a big plus for the Reds this term with the 18-year-old being trusted by Klopp to start the past two games and he is fully fit after withdrawing from the England Under-21 squad this week.

Virgil van Dijk is fit too after shaking off a knock picked up while with Holland.

Leeds team news

14:46 , Malik Ouzia

Full-back Junior Firpo, midfielder Mateusz Klich and the versatile Stuart Dallas are all fit and ready to return. Leeds have also been boosted by the news Raphinha is available after Brazil decided not to push FIFA to ban players from featuring for their clubs.

Defender Robin Koch has been recovering from a pelvic injury and he has not made it back in time to feature this week. New signing Dan James is available to make his debut.
