The Football Association have rejected Leeds United's attempts to have Pascal Struijk's red card and three-game ban rescinded.

Struijk lunged in on Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott during Sunday's Premier League clash and his tackle resulted in the 18-year-old suffering a dislocated ankle.

Elliott was enjoying his best run in the Liverpool first-team prior to his injury, having started three Premier League games in a row.

That's according to The Athletic , while the FA's decision comes after Elliott himself absolved Struijk of blame for his injury.

Elliott left the pitch on a stretcher and underwent surgery on Tuesday, while referee Craig Pawson showed Struijk a straight red card as the Reds went on to win 3-0 at Elland Road.

His lengthy spell on the sidelines will leave Klopp facing a selection headache in midfield, starting with the Champions League clash with AC Milan on Tuesday night.

Leeds appealed the decision earlier this week but their attempts to have his ban overturned have been unsuccessful, with the FA's disciplinary department rejecting their plea.
