The game was momentarily paused after Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott suffered a broken ankle following an outrageous tackle from Leeds United defender Pascal Struijk.

The events which unfolded at 59th minute of the game with Liverpool two goals up forced the referee to halt the game immediately as players and technical bench from both teams rushed to the scene. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp could be seen fuming over the mistackle as he lamented against the faul play.
