Elliott has been discharged from hospital and will undergo surgery in the coming days after suffering the injury during the second half at Elland Road.

Although Leeds played the final half an hour with 10 men after substitute Pascal Struijk was sent off for his challenge on Elliott, who received lengthy treatment before being carried off on a stretcher.

However, the 18-year-old Elliott posted a picture of himself with thumbs up on Instagram before full-time, writing: “Thank you for the messages guys! Road to recovery. YNWA.”

“It’s a bad injury to his ankle,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “I heard it was dislocated so we could put it back and he’s now in hospital. We have to wait, obviously. He played an incredible game and is an incredible player who is out.
“Do I want such a young boy early in his career to have this experience? No, but now it’s the case so we have to be there and we will be there. We’ll play football without him but we will wait for him as well because obviously he’s a top player.”
Meanwhile, responding in his press conference to Elliott’s social media post, Klopp said: “One of the Instagram posts I liked, if he did that already it is a sign he is not in much pain, so that is great.“We all saw the ankle was not in the right place and the medical team put it in the right place. There is not a lot of good things to say, otherwise it is a bad injury. We have to wait for further examinations and scans.”
