Salah nets 100th Premier League goal, but Liverpool loses Elliott to injury

-

Mohamed Salah scored his 100th English Premier League goal to set Liverpool on its way to a 3-0 win at Leeds United that was marred by an ankle injury to midfielder Harvey Elliott on Sunday.

Salah converted a cross by Trent Alexander-arnold in the 20th minute to become the 30th player to reach the milestone. Fabinho poked in a second goal on a corner in the 50th, and Sadio Mané added a third in stoppage time, extending Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season to four games.

Liverpool may be without Elliott for a considerab­le period, though, after he hurt his left ankle on a tackle by Leeds substitute Pascal Struijk that earned the defender a red card in the 60th minute.
