Elliott has been sidelined since a late challenge from leeds Defender Pascal Struijk on September 12 left the youngster with a fracture-dislocation in his left ankle.
The midfielder has been enthusiastically working on his rehabilitation during his spare time, and Klopp, his players and staff roundly praised Elliott for his mentality.
That hard work has allowed him to speed up his recovery, with a full training session in Kirkby scheduled for next week.
Several Merseyside journalists reported the news on Friday night, with the MailDominic King describes his return as “seamless” so far.
Although it will still take time for Elliott to get back up to speed, his return to training could see him challenge for a starting job again in the coming months.
Elliott can and should be made easy, perhaps even with a spot on the under-23 side for trips to crystal Palace (January 24) and leeds (February 7), but the hope will be that he can be influential again this season.
No date for the Boxing Day match has been confirmed at this time, but it is unlikely to be included in the so-called winter break later this month as suggested.
