Mohamed Salah scored his 100th Premier League goal to set a rampant Liverpool on their way to victory, while the excellent Fabinho added a second and Sadio Mane scored a third late on.
Elliott, 18, then suffered what looked like a very serious injury as Liverpool eased to victory but Jurgen Klopp will be devastated to potentially lose the rising star for most, if not all, of the 2021-22 season.
Liverpool sit third in the table, level on points with Manchester United and Chelsea above them after three wins and a draw from their four games so far.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds are still searching for their first win of the Premier League season after two defeats and two draws.

Three things we learned, Leeds vs Liverpool
1. Salah the machine keeps rolling: Only Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry have scored 100 Premier League goals faster than Salah. That says it all. Whatever you think about the Egyptian forward, he continues to be consistently excellent and deliver the goods when Liverpool need him. He has surpassed all of the expectations anyone had of him when he arrived at Anfield and is so ruthless. What an incredible machine he is.
2. Elliott injury looks awful: Elliott was tackled by Pascal Struijk in the second half at Elland Road and Mohamed Salah immediately signalled to the bench for help for his teammates. It looks as though Harvey Elliott suffered an ankle or lower leg injury, as he appeared to get his foot stuck in the ground as the tackle came in and Struijk landed on his lower leg. Struijk was sent off for the challenge, as replays of the injury to Elliott were not shown across NBC Sports’ platforms due to the horrendous nature of the impact and aftermath. Liverpool will be wishing him a speedy recovery as he’s been superb for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season. Elliott has a bright future in the game and everyone will be hoping he makes a positive recovery from this awful injury.
3. Another slow start for Leeds: Just like last season Bielsa’s boys have started sluggishly. Leeds had four wins in their opening 12 games last season and they have yet to win this season, losing heavily against Liverpool and Manchester United, then drawing against Everton and Burnley. Leeds will be just fine, but they will also be wary of a Sophomore slump and that old cliche of ‘teams have figured them out’ but surely Bielsa will have a few tricks up his sleeve.
Man of the Match: Sadio Mane – He was absolutely sensational throughout and finally got his goal late on. Missed plenty of chances but never gave up. Set the tone for Liverpool’s win.
Liverpool start fast
Leeds had a great chance early on as Raphinha set up Rodrigo, but his shot was straight at Alisson.
Liverpool started well, as Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped in a cross towards the back post but it just evaded his teammates.
Sadio Mane had a shot deflected wide and Diogo Jota had a shot pushed over by Illan Meslier.
Salah joins the 100 club
Salah slotted home the opener, as Liverpool got the goal their fine start deserved. Joel Matip surged forward after a patient move and Trent Alexander-Arnold crossed for Salah to finish.
Thiago Alcantara headed home what looked to be Liverpool’s second goal, but Salah was clearly offside in the build up and the goal was chalked off.
Jota then got free and squared for Mane at the back post, but the ball was just behind him and the Senegalese forward put his effort over the bar.
Harvey Elliott was denied by Meslier, Virgil van Dijk’s header was deflected wide and Mane drilled a shot just wide as Liverpool were dominant.
Fabinho finishes, as Liverpool cruise
In the second half more of the same occurred as Mane raced free after a rapid counter attack, and as Salah looked certain to score, Leeds somehow cleared.
From the resulting corner, Liverpool doubled their lead. Alexander-Arnold’s corner was nodded towards goal by Van Dijk and the second attempt Fabinho finished.
Substitute Tyler Roberts had a couple of chances for Leeds, as the game remained open.
Harvey Elliott suffers horrible injury
An awful moment then arrived as Pascal Struijk tackled Harvey Elliott strongly and the Liverpool youngster was stretchered off after appearing to suffer a serious lower leg injury. Struijk was sent off by referee Craig Pawson for the challenge.
Elliott, 18, was consoled on the pitch by players and staff from both teams, as he was given a standing ovation by the Elland Road crowd.
Mane gets his goal
Liverpool lost their focus a little after that injury, but Mane went close and so did Patrick Bamford who almost lobbed home from 45 yards.
Mane did get his goal in stoppage time to seal a thumping Liverpool win.

With nine teams currently separated by four points, from 20th to 12th places, the 2022-23 Premier League relegation scrap is not only set to last until the final day, but the final two months of the season are sure to be one of the wildest roller-coaster rides of all time.
Three clubs will be relegated from the Premier League (and replaced by three teams from the EFL Championship, of course) at season’s end. Never before have this many clubs been this close to the bottom-three, and the bottom of the table, at this point of a season.
How many games remaining between relegation candidates?
There are 23 remaining head-to-head matchups between the nine teams currently in the relegation battle.
Crystal Palace: 8 games (1 against every other team)
Wolves: 4 games
Leeds: 5 games
Everton: 4 games
Nottingham Forest: 4 games
Leicester: 6 games
West Ham: 5 games
Bournemouth: 6 games
Southampton: 4 games
FIFA said Indonesia was removed from staging the 24-team tournament scheduled to start on May 20 “due to the current circumstances” without specifying details.
The decision came after a meeting in Doha between FIFA president Gianni Infantino and Indonesian soccer federation president Erick Thohir.
Israel qualified last June for its first U20 World Cup. But the country’s participation in Friday’s scheduled draw in Bali provoked political opposition this month.
Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation and does not have formal diplomatic relations with Israel, while publicly supporting the Palestinian cause.
Indonesia’s hosting was cast into doubt on Sunday when FIFA postponed the draw.
It is unclear who could now host the tournament, which was scheduled to be played in six stadiums in Indonesia. Argentina, which did not qualify for the tournament, is reportedly interested in hosting.
“A new host will be announced as soon as possible, with the dates of the tournament currently remaining unchanged,” FIFA said.
The Indonesian soccer federation could be further disciplined by FIFA. A suspension could remove Indonesia from Asian qualifying for the 2026 World Cup, which starts in October.
FIFA seemed to remove all blame Wednesday from Thohir, the former president of Italian club Inter Milan – the team Infantino supports – and a former co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers.
FIFA staff will continue to work in Indonesia in the months ahead, the governing body said, “under the leadership of President Thohir.”
Soccer and public authorities in Indonesia agreed to FIFA’s hosting requirements in 2019 before being selected to stage the 2021 edition of the U20 World Cup. The coronavirus pandemic forced the tournament to be postponed for two years.
But Indonesian President Joko Widodo said Tuesday evening that his administration objected to Israel’s participation. He told citizens that the country agreed to host before knowing Israel would qualify.
Israel qualified by reaching the semifinals of the U19 European Championship. The team went on to lose to England in that final.
Israel plays in Europe as a member of UEFA after leaving the Asian Football Confederation in the 1970s for political and security reasons.
FIFA bills the men’s U20 World Cup as “the tournament of tomorrow’s superstars.”
Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba are previous winners of the official player of the tournament award, and Erling Haaland was the top scorer at the 2019 edition.
