Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott has undergone successful surgery after he sustained a serious ankle injury in their 3-0 win at Leeds United and he could return to action later this season, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Elliott, 18, suffered a fracture dislocation after a tackle from Leeds’ Pascal Struijk and had to be taken off on a stretcher before he was taken to the hospital.

“We were able to reduce the dislocation immediately on the pitch and Harvey had surgery today to repair the fracture and ligaments damaged in the incident. The operation was a success so his comeback starts now,” club doctor Jim Moxon said in a statement https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/443363-harvey-elliott-undergoes-successful-ankle-surgery.

“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.”

Struijk, who was sent off immediately after, apologised later on Instagram, saying what happened was something he “would never wish on anyone”.

Elliott responded by saying it was a freak accident and was not worthy of a red card.

“I’ll be back stronger 100%. Thanks for all the support,” he said.
