Harvey Elliott was 'Angry' he Didn't Score at Anfield

In a recent interview, Harvey Elliott has said how he felt when he was inches away from scoring at Anfield in front of his family.

Harvey Elliott has recently said how much he has matured as a player under Jurgen Klopp and how his time at Liverpool has made him more of a man.

"I think I've matured a lot as a player and as a man now that I've turned 18.

"Hopefully it leads me on my way to becoming a consistent starter for Liverpool. That's my goal and my dream and I'm willing to work hard for that.

"It's down to me to take the opportunities when they come."

In pre-season, Elliott also hit the post against Athletic Bilbao which would've been an unbelievable moment for the youngster.

He went on to say that it was the moment that he'd dreamt of and to do it in front of his family would've been amazing.

"My heart dropped because I thought it was a moment I'd dreamt of as a kid - scoring at Anfield. With all the fans back, my family in the crowd, it would have been nice, but I'm sure other opportunities will come.

"I wouldn't say it upset me, but it did anger me a little bit because it was just a hair's breadth away from being in. Anyway, I'd rather save my first Anfield goal for the Prem or something like that.”

Elliott also said that this season has to be 'go big or go home' for Liverpool if they want the Premier League and Champions League.

"It's either go big or go home. The Prem - that's our aim. If you come second , third or fourth then you don't get a medal. So that's our ambition, that's our aim. Premier League. Champions League. And we don't settle for second place.

"We have the players that can do it. Last year didn't really go to plan and obviously we need to look at stuff that's happened in our team due to injuries and whatnot. But now everyone is back, everyone looks sharp and we're raring to go."
