Harvey Elliott’s injury was the biggest talking point in Liverpool’s win over Leeds.

The Seattle Sounders finally got another MLS win at Lumen Field. OL Reign picked up three points as well, but they didn’t play their scheduled game against Washington Spirit due to Washington’s violations of league protocols. Plenty else took place, but not much seems more important than the instances of serious injury in the weekend’s games. Fortunately Harvey Elliott, the Liverpool teen, only has to recover from a dislocated ankle rather than what appeared to be a broken leg.
