Diogo Jota, Elliott, Van Dijk and, especially, Sadio Mane were wasteful or unfortunate, with Leeds throwing their bodies on the line and goalkeeper Illan Meslier excelling.
Elliott is back, fit and available, and might just be one of the creative keys that Liverpool rely on, especially with Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino out through injury.
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.
Sadio Mane gave the Reds the lead just past the half-hour mark at Elland Road following great play between Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Whether the 29-year-old wants to sign up remains to be seen.
