Wolves 3-1 Liverpool: Jamie Carragher Approves Elliott
Former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher, who was watching the game, couldn’t contain his delight at Elliott’s exceptional performance.
Elliott, a former Fulham talent, has been consistently outstanding this season and is earning the approval of manager Jurgen Klopp.
Taking to social media after the match, Carragher heaped praise on Elliott, recognizing him as “excellent.”
Despite his modest £40,000-a-week salary at Anfield, Elliott is proving to be a valuable asset for Liverpool, especially if he continues to score crucial goals.
Harvey Elliott’s potential has always been evident, and this season appears to be the one where he fully shines.
While breaking into Liverpool’s starting XI is challenging, if Elliott maintains his current form, he could become a regular feature.
Elliott, still a young talent, has a promising career ahead of him, and this season holds significant potential for him to showcase why the Reds acquired him.
