There's hope Harvey Elliott will play again for Liverpool this season.
Elliott, 18, was felled by Pascal Struijk after an hour of the Reds' match at Leeds United on Sunday, resulting in a dislocation and possible break of his ankle.
But expert sports surgeon and Liverpool fan, Mike Hennessey, said the rapid response of the club's medical team will aid Elliott's recovery and he should be back on the pitch in six months.
After an operation, Elliott will face six weeks rehabilitation and physiotherapy without putting weight on the joint, a further six weeks of some weight bearing activities, including hydrotherapy, and three months light training before he can return to the pitch, hopefully in March.
"He is young. He is a professional athlete in top condition and will not have any healing issues," said Hennessey, who was at Elland Road, to the Daily Mail.
