In their opening Premier League games, Liverpool have produced just two points, although Harvey Elliott stressed that Jürgen Klopp's squad continue to strive at the AXA Training Centre to turn their fortunes around. The No 19 said: "It's not really the start we wanted. "Obviously Liverpool, a great team with world-class players in the team as well, we always want to win every game.

According to the 19-year-old, it will be best to get those first three games, the draws against Fulham and the defeat to Manchester United, out of the way and focus on what's next in the season, because there are still 35 games to play between now and the middle of next year.

Elliot reckons they are working towards getting to the next game against Bournemouth well, working hard in training and hoping the results come that way: "We always do what we can in training and to reflect and make sure we put it right for the next game. The boys are working at their best and we hope the results will come soon".

The old against the young

Elliott and Fabio Carvalho have featured in all four of Liverpool's competitive games so far this season. Despite both being just 19, both believe they can and should have a lasting impact on games. "It's about making sure we do what we can to help the team," Elliot said.

"Obviously, we're younger players in the team, but we've got a lot of experience, so we can't use that as an excuse when it comes to these big games. Whether we are starting or coming on, we have to make sure we are fully focused and making an impact on the game."

The quest to get back to winning ways this weekend will be in front of their own fans. According to Elliot, the passion the fans bring to Anfield is very important, it's a passion that rubs off on the players, so the most important thing for them is to make the fans happy.  

"To have them as the 12th man, it's unbelievable for us players. To go out and know that you're going to have great support from the fans each and every game, whether it's home or away, they're always singing their hearts out, they always help us and give us the passion we need to keep going and pushing," added the Liverpool youngster.
