Good luck to him. He made a bright start to the season on the pitch and seems to be a decent lad off it too. 
Hope he comes back stronger and never has to play fucking Burnley again. 

it's not just about the injury i don't think though. these moments he gets in the team now are the building blocks that shape his career. we don't know how long he will be out for, but we do know from other players it is really hard to get the rhythm to get back in this team after a big injury. he could effectively lose the season even if he is only injured till xmas. let's hope the layoff isn't too long and he can get some more games under his belt this season.

Expected to be back this season but no timescale. 
 

Hopefully the fact they popped it back on

on the pitch bodes well. The poor lad must have been in agony while they did that.

Some good news then. Get well quickly, Harvey.

 

Why the fuck is it always our players getting these bad injuries? Alli did his calf against Norwich, Ox did his knee against Roma, the shite fucked Virgil's knee and Thiago's and now leeds yard dog does Harvey's ankle.

I'm actually proud of the lad. He seems very mature for his age and wears the badge well.

Hopefully his recovery will be swift and complete.

Cheers. I thought he'd supported it somewhere.

Just think he's trying to support a fellow pro to be honest. As many have said, although it was a genuine attempt for the ball (indeed, he wins the ball), the fact that he leaves the ground and it's the knee of his trailing leg that comes down and does the damage, for me the red is justified.

I think the fact they've said they're 'confident' he'll play again this season suggest that with if all goes to plan he'll be back well before May 2025

Harvey Elliott has shown encouraging signs in his road to recovery from an ankle break at Leeds by posting an image of him on an exercise bike. 

The 18-year-old Reds midfielder fractured his left ankle in a challenge by Leeds' Pascal Struijk that left him screaming in agony, just as the teenager was getting up and running in Jurgen Klopp's first team squad.

No timescale has been set for Elliott's return to action at Anfield but an image posted on his Instagram account on Tuesday is an important first checkpoint reached for the young midfielder.

The post came a few days after Elliott shared a snippet of him donning an oxygen mask for a photo showing the beginning of his rehabilitation programme. 

The 18-year-old is expected to return to action before the end of this season, with  Reds doctor Jim Moxon revealing the first responses from the medics on the Elland Road pitch were crucial to Elliott's recovery time. 

Last week, Elliott has posted an image of him wearing an oxygen mask in the rehab process

Moxon said: 'We were able to reduce the dislocation immediately on the pitch and Harvey had surgery to repair the fracture and ligaments damaged in the incident. The operation was a success so his comeback starts now.

'We won't put pressure on him by setting a specific timeframe beyond being able to say with confidence we expect him to feature again later in the season following our rehab programme.'

Elliott was just getting into his stride at Anfield after impressing Klopp in pre-season, which prompted the Reds to not strive for a midfield replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, who departed for PSG over the summer.

The 18-year-old had spent the last two years in Liverpool's academy after joining from Fulham, but an excellent loan spell at Blackburn Rovers last term saw him rise to prominence in the professional game. 

Elliott started his first Premier League match of the season for the Reds against Burnley and was then handed a shock chance from the off against title rivals Chelsea on August 28.

However, his first match after the September international break saw Elliott struck down on 63 minutes during the Leeds clash, which has threatened his continued involvement for the Reds this season.

Classy player. Little bit of the early-years Wilshire about him, which is a huge compliment. Hopefully get him back for later in season, and he doesn't lose mobility as a result.

We have to realise that 17 and 18 year olds who reach the first team have already been playing football regularly(two or three times a week) for 8,9,10 years before they hit the first team. The physical strain of playing so much football alongside playing against players who are men and 10-15 years older in some cases is a big step up. I am not saying this has anything to do with Elliott specifically but these are among the main reasons most managers are reluctant to play young players a lot while they are still growing physically,let alone tactically. While Klopp has faith in Elliott and Jones et al from a technical and skill point of view,he will still understand that they cannot be expected to perform like 27 year olds across a whole season. Elliott,and Jones to a certain extent,inclusions are not ideal and are a result of experienced players letting the club down,Ox and Keita mostly.

As horrific an injury as it looks, it appears to have a relatively short recovery time, if Gomes at Everton is anything to go by.
