Leeds United have appealed the red card shown to young defender Pascal Struijk during Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Liverpool.

VAR intervened and deemed Struijk's challenge to be worthy of a red card.

"Neither was it a red card, just a freak accident but these things happen in football."

As noted by The Athletic's Phil Hay, Leeds disagree with the official's verdict that Struijk's challenge was 'serious foul play' and they hope to see his three-match ban rescinded.

Leeds share that viewpoint, as they have launched an appeal to the Premier League to get the decision overturned.

With Struijk suspended as it stands, Bielsa's only senior, available centre-back is captain Liam Cooper, who may have to be joined inside by right-back Luke Ayling if the Premier League stand firm on their decision.

The 22-year-old was given his marching orders following a collision with Harvey Elliott which left the Liverpool midfielder with a dislocated ankle.
