'I Really Like Him' - Pundit Reveals Which Liverpool Player Could Shine Next Season
| Last updated
Elliott, who started the first four Premier League games of last season, suffered a lengthy setback against Leeds United which kept him out until February.
He scored on his return against Cardiff City in the FA Cup, and played in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea after coming off the bench.
Speaking to Football Insider, former Aston Villa defender Hutton claimed that the Liverpool starlet could make an impact on Klopp’s side next season.
The BBC Radio commentator said: “I really like him. I covered a lot of games at the start of last season before his injury."
"There was one that stuck out in my mind, I think they were playing Burnley at home and he was in the midfield and he linked up so well with Trent [Alexander-Arnold] on the right-hand side. He just played with such a freedom.
“For one so young, playing at such a big club, and all that pressure that was on him he just took it in his stride."
"It was a real shame the injury came at that moment in time because he was really flourishing within that team like a regular.
“He’s got over it now, hopefully, he can get back to his best as soon as possible but I would like to see him kick on this season."
"I think there’s an opportunity. If you can say anything about the Liverpool side where there’s room for improvement it is the midfield. And that’s not saying anything bad about the players that are already there."
“You look at the likes of Jordan Henderson, who’s not getting any younger, Thiago [Alcantara] as good as he is isn’t getting any younger."
"So, there’s opportunity for these guys coming through and hopefully Harvey Elliot will be the next one to break in.”
Elliott looked sharp despite the Reds’ 4-0 defeat to Manchester United, and will look to impress his coaches once more in tomorrow’s fixture with Crystal Palace.
