“A bit more output in terms of assists and goals, and he will be on his way. But a tremendous talent.”
Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch has hailed how Elliott has returned from the broken ankle he suffered early last term and reckons this season could be a real breakthrough campaign. Crouch said: “I’ve been really impressed.
“I said at the start of the year it could be a really really big year for him, it’s proven to be the case. I think people forget he was first choice last year, he was just very unlucky with injuries – that’s the thing that held him back.
“He’s got plenty of ability, he can come inside, he’s built a good relationship with Trent and Salah, he can pick a pass and I think Liverpool’s midfield has been industrious under Jurgen Klopp but he can be the real key because he can unlock defences. If he adds goals to his game I think he will be a real top player.”
