There is some positive news coming from the Liverpool camp with reports indicating that Harvey Elliott may play again this season.
The youngster had successful surgery on his ankle on Tuesday according to a statement from Liverpool and while the club was reluctant to reveal the extent to which he will be put, there is a belief that he might play again before the season ends.
The news will be a boost for the reds as the 18-year-old was beginning to cement his place in the Reds’ regular starting XI.
Club doctor, Dr Jim Moxon who, along with first-team physiotherapist Chris Morgan, was first on the pitch to treat the midfielder – explained: “Harvey sustained a fracture-dislocation of his left ankle during the game.
“We were able to reduce the dislocation immediately on the pitch and Harvey had surgery today to repair the fracture and ligaments damaged in the incident. The operation was a success so his comeback starts now.
“We won’t put pressure on him by setting a specific timeframe beyond being able to say with confidence we expect him to feature again later in the season following our rehab programme.”
