Liverpool (9/2 Premier League Outright) manager Jurgen Klopp says his side were excellent in their 3-0 victory against Leeds at Elland Road in a match which saw starlet Harvey Elliott suffer a serious ankle injury.

The Reds have jumped up to third place in the Premier League table, level with Manchester United and Chelsea after four games.

Mohamed Salah (9/2 Premier League Top Scorer) scored a tap-in after 20 minutes which was his 100th goal in the Premier League – the Egyptian being the fifth-fastest player to reach that milestone.

Fabinho took advantage of some slack Leeds defending from a corner to prod home early in the second half before the restless Sadio Mane put the icing on the cake in injury time.

Liverpool’s solid and commanding win was marred by a nasty-looking injury to Elliott following a challenge from Leeds defender Pascal Struijk, who was shown a straight red card by referee Craig Pawson.

Klopp confirmed afterwards the 18-year-old suffered a dislocated ankle.

However, he was very pleased with the manner of his team’s performance.

“We were really good. We played top football and we should have made more of the football we played,” said the German.

“In the end, 3-0 is a top result. We’re greedy and I stand here and say we should have had 5, 6, 7. The football we played was exceptional.”

“The whole team was shocked and we lost rhythm,” he added, in regards to Elliott’s injury. “That is normal, human. We played as good as we can against Leeds.”

Liverpool now prepare to face AC Milan (Match Betting – Liverpool 8/15, Draw 7/2, AC Milan 5/1) at home on Wednesday as their Champions League campaign gets underway.
