Harvey Elliott happy to play anywhere in Liverpool preseason

Harvey Elliott was happy to be part of Liverpool's friendly defeat to Hertha Berlin yesterday.

For Elliott, the exact nature of his involvement matters little – gaining and maximising opportunities of any description is the sole focus for the No.67.

“To be honest, I don't mind playing anywhere," he told after featuring in the opening 45 minutes of Thursday's 4-3 friendly defeat by Hertha BSC in Austria.

"Wherever I play, I'm just excited to put the shirt on every single game, give it my 100 per cent, work as hard as I can and just try to influence the game.

“Wherever the gaffer tells me to play, I'm more than confident and willing to play there. It's just all about putting on the shirt again and giving it 100 per cent."

The midfielder added: “We go into every single game thinking we can beat any team, whether it's pre-season or in a league game. Whatever the competition is, we go in giving it 100 per cent, feeling like we can give it our all and get the win.

“Obviously it didn't go our way today but we can reflect on it [and] next game put it right. We're not making any excuses, because at the end of the day our performance wasn't good enough. But we'll go again next game."
