Liverpool have confirmed youngster Harvey Elliott has undergone a successful surgery today following the ankle injury he suffered against Leeds United at the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp's side ran out convincing 3-0 winners at Elland Road, but the victory was soured by the serious injury sustained by the 18-year-old, who was in visible pain following a tackle by Pascal Struijk in the second half.

The road to recovery starts now.

Dr Moxon said: “Harvey sustained a fracture-dislocation of his left ankle during the game.

“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.” Elliott shared a snap from his hospital bed following the surgery, declaring the "road to recovery starts now."

“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.

Elliott suffered "a fracture-dislocation of the left joint" which requires extensive surgery to repair, with club doctor Dr Jim Moxon and physiotherapist Chris Morgan having initially popped his bone back in place before he was stretchered off the pitch on Sunday.
