Liverpool injury update: Harvey Elliott resumes training


Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott has returned to light training as he increases his recovery from an ankle injury.

The 18-year-old has been out of action since suffering a serious injury in a match against Leeds United in September. The bang stopped Elliott’s fine start to the season, with the youngster enjoying three Premier League starts before being injured.

However, his recovery has been huge, and on Monday he was seen resuming light training at Liverpool’s AXA Training Center. Elliot was shown in the gym and even more encouragingly he was able to do a light jog on the grass.

Earlier this month, Jurgen Klopp praised the youngster for his hard work on recovery and said: “He’s amazing, Harvey is amazing. I have no idea when exactly it will be, but we can not really wait. It looks really good. out.

“Whatever person you talk to from the rehab department, you hear that he is so determined, he is really very positive all the time with us here.

“It’s nice to see him smile all day and work hard. He’s coming back, but I do not know how soon.”

News of Elliott’s steady progress will be music to Liverpool fans’ ears as the club suffers a midfield injury crisis before the international break.

Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara all spent time on the sidelines last month and although they have since recovered, the ever-present Jordan Henderson was recently forced to withdraw from the English team after receiving his own blow.

Klopp will want to have as many of his midfielders in shape as the Reds have some important matches underway. They kick off after the national team break with a match against Arsenal, before taking on FC Porto and Southampton. This is followed by a Merseyside Derby starting in December.
