Pundit hails 'great news' on Elliott as Liverpool comeback date suggested
Harvey Elliott could return from injury for Liverpool before 1 January.
That is the view of former Spurs and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 18-year-old’s recovery.
Elliott has been out since he he dislocated his ankle at Elland Road in September.
As relayed by club media footage, the winger has returned to light training and is out on the grass at the AXA Training Centre.
It comes just days after the teenager released pictures on Instagram of himself in the gym using the leg press machine.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the news, Robinson said: “It looked like a bad injury at the time.

“He is recovering very quickly if he is already back out on the grass and doing leg presses.
“It’s great news for Liverpool because they are light in that area.
“Elliott was in brilliant form before his injury. Hopefully it doesn’t take him long to rediscover that form when he returns.
“Players are looked after very carefully these days. But, if he is back out on the grass I’d expect him to be back in contention before the new year. I’d estimate it’s a case of weeks not months now.”
Elliott started the season in fine form for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
He made four Premier League appearances of which three were starts.
