Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott marked an eagerly anticipated return in stunning style against Cardiff City over the weekend.
The 18-year-old came off the bench for the Reds and made an almost instant impact with a first senior goal for the club.
All of this came some five months on from a serious ankle injury suffered against Leeds United.
Former Premier League striker Gary Lineker was certainly delighted to see Elliott back in action and took to Twitter to praise the strike.
Cracking goal. Great to see Harvey Elliott back on the pitch. Very exciting young talent. 👏🏻👏🏻 https://t.co/SES3GIGadB

Prior to the horrific injury, Elliott had already begun dazzling the Premier League with his attacking exploits.
The teenager now has one goal in five appearances this season and will be determined to finish the campaign on a high.

It truly was brilliant to see.
Back in September, it appeared as though all the misconceptions about a midfield issue had been put to bed as the £13.5million valued teen took centre stage.
Following the injury, there can be no doubt the Reds have missed the mercurial talent and Jurgen Klopp’s despair was all the proof needed to show how much the club rate their man.
Elliott’s comeback, coupled with the arrival of Luis Diaz adds to the excitement around Anfield as Liverpool carry the fight in all four competions.
