Liverpool attacking midfielder Harvey Elliott is back outside training with the ball as he steps up his recovery from a dislocated ankle.
The teenager looks to be closing in on a return to first-team action and supporters on Twitter are hoping that he can make his comeback soon:

Elliott surprisingly started three of the Reds’ first four Premier League games this campaign, with manager Jurgen Klopp placing a lot of trust in the 18-year-old following a very good pre-season.
However, a clumsy tackle by Leeds defender Pascal Struijk in the 3-0 win at Elland Road in mid-September led to him needing surgery on his ankle.
Luckily for Elliott, he was able to start rehabilitation pretty quickly and, after first estimates suggested that he may only return to full fitness nearer to the end of the season, it now appears he could be back in contention for games early in the New Year.
