Leeds United have appealed the red card Pascal Struijk received after chopping down Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott on Sunday.

Referee Craig Pawson initially waved play on following the tackle, but then gave Struijk his marching orders after VAR intervention.

After inflicting the horror injury, Struijk was quick to apologise to Elliott.

Elliott now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines, but defended his Leeds counterpart for the tackle.

Former Premier League and Euro 2016 final referee Mark Clattenburg has joined the debate about whether Struijk should have received a red card for the tackle.

"Referee Craig Pawson didn't even blow for a foul. As far as he was concerned, Struijk won the ball fairly."

"As far as the PGMOL are concerned, Struijk endangered Elliott. But like Tottenham with Son, Leeds may well win their appeal."
