Liverpool are confident that Harvey Elliott will play again this season after the youngster successfully underwent surgery on his serious ankle injury sustained in Leeds.
Elliott was tolerated in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Leeds on Sunday after fracturing his left ankle in the second half of the Reds win on Elland Road.
The incident was a terrible moment for the teenager, who has impressed since breaking into Jurgen Klopp’s side in the first few weeks of the Premier League season, despite the club’s medical staff providing a positive update on Elliott’s condition.
While a return schedule has not yet been set, the 18-year-old is expected to return to activity before the end of the current season.
“Harvey fractured his left ankle during the game,” said club doctor Dr. Jim Moxon told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We were able to reduce the dislocation on the field immediately, and Harvey had an operation today to repair the fracture and the ligaments that were damaged in the incident. The operation was a success, so it’s now starting to make a comeback.
“We’re not going to put pressure on him by setting a specific timeframe beyond being able to say with confidence that we expect him to come back later in the season after our rehab program.”
