Liverpool have been handed a fitness boost as they are hopeful that Harvey Elliott will be able to play against Leeds United.

Good news…

Elliott has started every single one of Liverpool’s games so far this season.

The young midfielder has caught the eye through his showings, where his performances have earned great praise.

Elliott, who has recently been called ‘special’ by BBC Sport pundit Jermaine Beckford, did withdraw with injury from England under-21 duty though, which has sparked some real worry.

But the Reds are optimistic that he will be back and fit to play against Leeds.

In worse news, Liverpool are more likely to be without Takumi Minamino.

The Japanese international suffered a thigh strain and is unlikely to be risked at Elland Road.

Minamino may not have started anyway, but his pace could have been useful off the bench in a game against a Leeds side who typically are open to the counter attack.

Liverpool have taken seven points from their first three games this season, while Leeds are still looking for their first win.
