A number of Liverpool supporters are delighted after James Pearce claimed Reds youngster Harvey Elliott should play again this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side may have won 3-0 at Leeds United last Sunday, but in many ways, it was a difficult result to feel too happy about.
Elliott’s dislocated ankle tarnished what should have been a celebratory afternoon at Elland Road, with the 18-year-old stretchered off in the second half.
It was a cruel blow for the midfielder, who has looked so impressive in the early weeks of the season, justifying the faith Klopp has shown in him.
On Tuesday, Pearce confirmed on Twitter that Elliott underwent successful surgery on the injury and should play again this season.
While a long spell on the sidelines is still expected, it is a positive update that suggests his absence won’t be as long-term as Virgil van Dijk’s last season, for example.
