Liverpool injury boost as Reds star delivers six-word Instagram update
Wonderkid Harvey Elliott has posted a six-word message to Liverpool fans on Instagram as he steps up his recovery from a dislocated ankle.
Elliott, 18, made a brilliant start to the 21-22 season. Having impressed on loan at Blackburn last term, he broke into Liverpool’s starting XI this term.
The midfielder scored seven goals and created 11 more in 42 appearances for the Championship side. That was enough for Jurgen Klopp.
Coming on as a sub against Norwich on the opening day, Elliott then started the next three Premier League games – against Burnley, Chelsea and Leeds.
But against Leeds, Elliott suffered a horrific dislocated ankle injury after a tackle by Pascal Struijk. He has undergone surgery to correct the issue.
Now, a few weeks on from the injury, Elliott has posted a six-word message on Instagram – alongside an encouraging picture of him in the gym.
Elliott posts on Instagram: Liverpool need teenager to return quickly
The teenage sensation is quickly becoming more and more important for Liverpool – even with Elliott sat on the sidelines, he becomes more integral.
That is because Liverpool are edging closer to January, when Sadio Mane and Mo Salah jet off to the African Cup of Nations. Naby Keita goes, too.
Liverpool need cover for Salah and Mane. Xherdan Shaqiri was sold to Lyon, while Keita’s absence will see a possible front three option drop deep.
The likes of Curtis Jones or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can play up top – but may have to play in midfield to cover Keita’s absence.
All of this means Elliott is becoming more important, and his return is being hotly anticipated by Liverpool. Time will tell, if he can return in time.
