Blackburn attacker Harvey Elliott reveals Liverpool in constant contact

Liverpool attacker Harvey Elliott was delighted to get off the mark for Blackburn Rovers.

Elliott started his first Championship match in midweek during Rovers' 3-1 defeat to Watford and was once again in the starting XI against Coventry City on Saturday. The Liverpool loanee grabbed his first goal for the club and an assist in a dominant 4-0 win, albeit with the help of a very early red card for the hosts.

"They're always messaging me everyday," he told LancsLive.

"After every training session, after every game, they're messaging me.

"I still got messages off the players saying good luck, hope you're well, miss you and stuff like that. So to have them message me is a boost for me as well."

On his loan spell and the result, Elliott said: "The main result is the key thing here. I was just happy to score and contribute to the win. Hopefully, it's the first of many but I'm just excited to see what happens really."
