Liverpool fans feel that Leeds United have been harshly treated by the FA, after their appeal against Pascal Struijk’s red card was rejected.

Appeal submitted

The Athletic reported this morning that Leeds’ had failed with their bid to get Struijk’s suspension overturned.

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.

What-If EVERY Premier League Team Was A Country

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.

Big blow

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.
