I would say that it's probably too early to tell the full extent of the injury? It looked far worse than a dislocation. 

Klopp has said it's a dislocation that they couldn't reset but too early to put a time scale on it.

Gutted for the lad but I don't feel he should be anywhere near the first team just yet. Before his injury today I thought he was pretty poor. Who knew we'd get injuries this season though?

He was good the first half and fadded the second.  Considering he was injured during the International break him fading wasn't unexpected.

Probably didnt help with the injury either.

Well he's had plenty of practice

I know ever injury is different but would a dislocation be better than a break? He tried to get up but luckily he was sat down again, could have done more damage. What a shame he's already looking a top player. Good thing is he's so young and should heal very quickly.

As well as a great player, he seems a really good kid.  He showed his class in the way he applauded their applauds, although the songs Leeds fans sang when he was down and afterwards, confirms why they are utter scum. “There’s only one Don Revie” during the Busby minute silence. Down there with Millwall and Chelsea IMO.

 

Just a quick comment on the reaction of players when someone has a horrific injury, and this nothing on just Mo. Instead of always running away with head in hands, maybe support the poor sod who has had a career threatening injury and is lying in pain.  Imagine if a soldier ran away at the sight of their comrade with a their guts spilling out. That’s when they need their mates most.

Having viewed it back and seeing the pictures it doesn't look deliberate, he kind of lands on his ankle and it gets trapped. Very unfortunate.

 

Gutted for him, at least he has some time on his side at 18. Hope he recovers quickly and strongly.

Didnt catch the first half today so dont know how he did. But think he’s shown in the other matches that he’s one of the best midfielders at the club, and certainly good enough to start quite a few PL games.

Some people are just born that way.

The difference is that a footballer should never have to look at their mates back to front leg, it’s just a game and they’re players, a soldier knows what he’s signing up for and blood and guts is very much in the job description.

TBF a dislocation is about the worst "look" you can have. The fella is a heck of a player.

You're not wrong. I've just googled "ankle dislocation recovery timeline" and one of the top links featured a very gruesome-looking injury where the foot is about 6 inches sideways from where it should be!

 

That said, it seems like assuming you can reset the ankle without surgery (which is apparently the case with Harvey) that it's about 12 weeks until you have full range of motion back in most cases. So 3 months out in cast/doing rehab, plus however long it takes him to return to full fitness from what he loses over that 3 months. I'm guessing it'll end up being 4-5 months, most likely.

Sounds reasonable if there isn't too much ligament damage.

Won't his ligaments be fucked though ?

Imagine if it had been Ronaldo on the end of the tackle.

The media would be calling for a longer ban
