Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott is expected to return to full training this week, according to reports in the UK.
The 18-year-old dislocated his ankle in a 3-0 win over Leeds back in September but he has been slowly building up his fitness in recent weeks as he closes in on his first-team comeback.
Fans on Twitter are very happy to hear that Elliott could be available for selection soon, with many hoping that he can make an impact in upcoming games:

It’s highly unlikely that he’ll be in the squad for Thursday’s game against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup, but there is definitely a possibility of him being back on the bench in the next couple of weeks.
Elliott was making a big impression in the team before his unfortunate injury and, while it may take some time for the teenager to get back to his best, manager Jurgen Klopp will be glad to have another option in midfield.
