Harvey Elliott has been discharged from hospital and will undergo surgery in the coming days after suffering a dislocated ankle in Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Leeds on Sunday.
The 18-year-old was in severe pain after going down under a challenge from Leeds’ Pascal Struijk, who was sent off in the 60th minute following a VAR review into the incident.
Play was halted for several minutes as Elliott received treatment from Liverpool’s medical staff.
Jurgen Klopp said after the game:
“It’s a bad injury. Ankle – it was dislocated and it has now been put back. He is now in the hospital.
“He played again an incredible game, he is an incredible player. Now he is out. Do I want such a young boy to have this experience so early in his career? No.
“But now it is the case, and we have to be there and we will be there [for him] so we will play football without him but we will wait for him as well because obviously, he is a top, top, top player.
“I could see immediately the effect [of the challenge], because I could see his foot was not in the right place, that is why we were all shocked.”
