Fitness Update: Harvey Elliott and Takumi Minamino Injuries

Liverpool have recently been handed a blow as both Takumi Minamino and Harvey Elliott were sent back home after sustaining injuries during international duty.

It's been a few weeks since the Premier League started and Liverpool have now lost a few of their main players during international duty as the break started a few days ago.

Most supporters were hoping that the Liverpool squad came back home without any knocks, but unfortunately that was not the case.

Liverpool have recently been handed a blow as both Takumi Minamino and Harvey Elliott were sent back home after sustaining injuries during international duty.

The Japanese international team did not give any detailed information on Takumi Minamino's injury but a recent claim from The Liverpool Echo says that the player's injury is not a serious one.

Although the 26 year old forward is not considered a major blow due to the limited amount of minutes under Jurgen Klopp, the fact that the Reds did not reinforce their forward line in the summer transfer window makes Minamino's knock a painful one for fans.

In the other end, Liverpool starlet Harvey Elliott also withdrew from England's under-21's squad after sustaining a muscle injury.

Luckily, in a recent update from The Athletic it has been reported that Elliott's withdrawal from international duty was only a precautionary measure, and that the youngster is back at Liverpool receiving treatment.

It will be unlikely that we will see Eliott and Minamino back for the Leeds game, as Jurgen Klopp tends to avoid using his players when they just come back from a knock, but it is safe to assume that both forwards won't be missing from the squad for long.
