'Awful, ridiculous': Some Liverpool fans aren't happy about news coming out of Leeds United
Liverpool fans feel that Leeds United have been harshly treated by the FA, after their appeal against Pascal Struijk’s red card was rejected.
The centre back was given his marching orders, after his tackle led to Harvey Elliott sustaining a bad injury on Sunday.
The challenge itself wasn’t particularly malicious, but Struijk may have been sent off on the basis of the extent of Elliott’s injury.
Even the Liverpool youngster has now came out and suggested that Struijk shouldn’t have been sent off for his tackle, though.
And Reds supporters feel that the decision to uphold Struijk’s red-card is the wrong one.
Struijk being unavailable is a big blow for Leeds, given their dearth of central defensive options right now.
Leeds also have Diego Llorente and Robin Koch ruled out, which means Luke Ayling may have to come into a central defensive role on Friday against Newcastle United.
Leeds are still looking for their first win of the season, after failing to come out on top of any of their first four league games.
