Mohamed Salah started things off by scoring his 100th Premier League goal. The Egyptian star converted a cross by Trent Alexander-Arnold to become the 30th player to reach the milestone.
Fabinho scored the second in the 50th minute and Sadio Mane added a third in stoppage time.
It was a bittersweet night for Liverpool as Elliott’s injury - sustained on the left ankle following a tackle by Leeds substitute Pascal Struijk - revived memories of a serious knee injury by Virgil van Dijk that kept the defender out for most of last season.
