Jurgen Klopp and co. receives a major boost as Harvey Elliott is all set to return for full training from next week. As concerns mount over the Reds midfield, the Liverpool midfielder will be welcomed by open arms.
12th September 2021, the date when Liverpool travelled to Elland Road to face Leed United and who knew that would be Elliott’s last game in that year. The Leeds defender Pascal Struijk caught up in an incident with the LFC midfielder which eventually led to a fracture-dislocation in Harvey’s left ankle.
The 18-year-old was quite impressive in the opening games he played this season. Moreover, the teenager was also able to earn his place in the first team with his impressive display.
However, Elliott is yet to open his account of goals & assist for Liverpool. But, looking at his progress he might return soon and will fight again for his place in the starting XI.
Meanwhile, Liverpool’s midfield looks shabby at the moment. With Thiago out due to hip injury, the Reds are struggling to find some creativity in the middle of the park. Moreover, captain Henderson and Mr reliable James Milner were finding it quite difficult to break Arsenal’s defense line. While Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also scuffling and has been unable to deliver.
As Curtis Jones is currently filling the void shoes left behind by Mane, who is on AFCON duty, Liverpool are in requirement of some fresh blood in the midfield.
When can Liverpool fans expect Harvey Elliott to be back in action for the Reds?
At the time of injury, It looked like Liverpool’s No. 67 won’t feature again this season. But Harvey has worked extremely hard on his rehab and his enthusiasm and positive mindset has been praised by Klopp, his players and staff.
Moreover, many journalists along with Daily Mail‘s Dominic King have reported his rehab going “smoothly” at the moment.
However, even after returning to full training, it will still take some time for Elliott to be back in action. The Liverpool fans will be eager to see him back in the first team as soon as possible.
The Reds fans can expect a return of Harvey in the first week of February. Although, he might also be in contention to be on the bench for the game against Crystal Palace (23rd January).
While Jurgen Kloop and co. will be hoping that Elliott could replicate his form from where he left.
