Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott says Leeds United defender Pascal Struijk failed red card appeal is "wrong".

Leeds have had Struijk's red card appeal rejected by the FA.

The decision was immediately called 'wrong' by Elliott who suffered a dislocated ankle in the challenge that led to the dismissal.

Struijk, 22, was sent off in the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool after his tackle led to a horror injury to Elliott.

Struijk will now serve a three-match ban, meaning he will miss Leeds' games against Newcastle, Fulham in the Carabao Cup and West Ham.

He wrote on social media: "Sorry about this Pascal. I think it's wrong!

"But it'll soon blow over brother and you'll be back in no time smashing it again. Keep positive."
