Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott has taken to social media to show his defiance in the face of adversity after sustaining a horror ankle injury in Sunday’s clash with Leeds United. The 18-year-old was stretchered off on the hour mark after being tackled from behind by Pascal Struijk.
Struijk was given his marching orders by referee Craig Pawson, before Elliott was taken to hospital after leaving the pitch on what was thought to have been a dislocated ankle.
Elliott will undergo further assessments before discovering the full extent of his injury as he looks set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
On Monday morning, Elliott posted a message on his Instagram story accompanying a lengthy statement. “I WILL BE BACK,” said the midfielder.
Elliott has been in fine form this season and impressed after being handed Premier League starts against Burnley and Chelsea last month.
Boss Jurgen Klopp named the player in his starting line-up once again on Sunday for the encounter at Elland Road, but the afternoon ended catastrophically for the youngster.

“I’m of course absolutely devastated with what happened yesterday at Leeds, but have been totally overwhelmed by the love and support shown to me by the entire football world following the injury,” Elliott continued in his statement.
“Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out or sent messages to me and my family, it means so much to us.
“Also a massive thanks to everyone inside Elland Road for the reception you gave me immediately after it happened.
“I am now fully focused on my recovery and will give everything in my rehabilitation to be back out there as soon as I can.

“To all of the Liverpool fans, your support means the world to me. I’m one of you and I can’t wait to be back faster, fitter and stronger to help the team in the future.
“You’ll Never Walk Alone!”
Liverpool ran out 3-0 winners at Elland Road courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane.
The victory moves the Reds up to third place in the Premier League table, behind Manchester United and Chelsea despite sharing the same goal difference.
Klopp’s side have won three of their opening four games of the campaign and drew the other match against Chelsea.
They are set to host AC Milan on Wednesday evening as their Champions League campaign gets underway.
And the Reds will return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon when Crystal Palace visit Anfield.
