Jamie Carragher backs Harvey Elliot to shine this season

Jamie Carragher makes Harvey Elliot prediction for this season.

Harvey Elliot enjoyed a year-long loan spell at Blackburn Rovers last season making over 40 appearances, scoring seven goals and creating 11 assists.

In Liverpool’s pre-season in Austria, Elliot was used in a midfield three by the Reds and was impressive against Hertha Berlin last week.

Xherdan Shaqiri is believed to leave Anfield this summer and Elliot would be a perfect replacement for the Swiss international according to Jamie Carragher.

Carragher said: “He was outstanding last season, one of the best players in the Championship for such a young lad.

“I actually see Harvey coming in and taking the place of Shaqiri, really, who I think will move on, and he (Elliott) will have that role in the squad.

“It is interesting in pre-season he has played more central midfield than part of the front three because it’s always going to be difficult being a right-sided attacking player with a left foot when you have Mo Salah in front of you but he will get opportunities.

“He is a player of huge quality and I am sure he is going to have a massive Liverpool future and, when you have someone who has that quality, it doesn’t matter about his age, you have to give them their head.

“I’d imagine Harvey Elliott will be getting 15 to 20 games this season.”
