Harvey Elliott has been shown a lot of faith by Jurgen Klopp this season as the 18-year-old has started Liverpool's past two Premier League games, but the youngster has withdrawn from England U21 duty through injury.
Elliott was with the England youth side for their European Championship qualifier against Kosovo, but has returned to Anfield earlier than originally expected.
The 18-year-old reported for England training despite carrying an injury that he sustained in Liverpool's 1-1 draw against Chelsea last month, and the decision was taken to have Elliott withdraw from the squad and return to Liverpool, according to the FA's official website.
Elliott now faces a race to be fit for Liverpool's next clash, as Klopp's side travel to Elland Road to face Leeds on Sunday.
Despite the worrying reports, The Athletic has claimed that it’s only a precautionary measure and Liverpool hope that he will recover in time to feature in their next Premier League match.
Elliott will be assessed and monitored by the Liverpool's medical staff in the coming days, to see if he will be ready to feature for Klopp's side, after impressing against both Burnley and Chelsea at Anfield.

The 18-year-old wasn't the only Liverpool player to pick up an injury while away on international duty, after Takumi Minamino suffered a knock while featuring for Japan.
Thankfully though, Klopp has a relatively fit squad to choose from ahead of their next clash as Liverpool look to build on their unbeaten start to the new season, with Leeds yet to secure a Premier League win so far this campaign.
