Rising Liverpool sensation Harvey Elliott is expected to return to action this season after a positive update on his horror ankle injury.

“Harvey sustained a fracture dislocation of his left ankle during the game,” club doctor Dr Jim Moxon told (via the PA).

The 18-year-old was carried off in Sunday’s 3-0 win at Elland Road with an injury which left some of his team-mates visibly distressed following a tackle which saw Pascal Struijk sent off – a dismissal Leeds are appealing against.

“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.” The news will come as a positive to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who had been awaiting news of the surgery and said Elliott “was in the best possible place.

We celebrate together, and when an important player gets injured we are injured together for him.” Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warmly applauded the longevity of AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic – but the veteran Swede will miss out on a return to English football having sustained an injury ruling him out against the Reds.

He wants to stay in the game as long as possible – and rightly so, he is absolutely capable of playing in each league in the world still.” READ MORE: ‘I can’t see that with Mo’ – Klopp provides telling update on Liverpool, Salah contract hopes

Elliott underwent an operation on Tuesday and will subsequently begin a programme of rehabilitation.
