Here is your Liverpool morning digest for Wednesday, September 15.

Mohamed Salah leaves FSG with no option

It was great to score three goals against Leeds, but Liverpool will have walked away from that game at Elland Road wondering how many other chances they could have put away, writes ECHO columnist John Aldridge.

The one thing that concerned me from the game, from a striker’s point of view, was the lack of conviction in front of goal.

It could have been a repeat of what we did away to Crystal Palace last season and Leeds could have had no complaints if that had been the case.

We missed three sitters but it doesn’t matter as we won three-nil. But, if we’re going to win the league, we need our three forwards to be at it all game.

I was really impressed with Mohamed Salah. If players want to go, they will go. But we have now reached the point whereby Liverpool have to do whatever they can to keep him. He’s a top player.

While other teams are buying the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Cristiano Ronaldo and these star players, we have to concentrate on keeping him.

It is a business, you have to do the right thing at the right time and they have to roll out the red carpet because he’s back at it, from what I can see.

He looks like he’s got the bit between his teeth and let’s hope the club can do a deal.


Harvey Elliott surgery update as club doctor outlines recovery

Liverpool hope to have Harvey Elliott play this season after he underwent successful surgery on his ankle.

The 18-year-old suffered a dislocated ankle on Sunday during the Reds’ 3-0 win over Leeds United in the Premier League.

Elliott received treatment on the pitch and was then taken to Leeds General Infirmary for further assessment.

Jurgen Klopp said in his pre-match press conference that Elliott would have surgery on Tuesday, and now the club have confirmed the procedure was a success.

Dr Jim Moxon, Liverpool club doctor who was first on the pitch to treat Elliott, along with first-team physiotherapist Chris Morgan, explained how they hope to have the teenager back playing before the end of the season.
