Liverpool veteran Milner: The advice I can offer Elliott

Liverpool veteran James Milner says there's no need to give advice to young teammate Harvey Elliott.

Liverpool had been tipped to dip into the transfer market to bring in a new playmaker, but it now seems manager Jurgen Klopp will utilise Elliott instead.

Milner told the Liverpool Echo: "He is a top player. From the first time I trained with him, you could recognise how good he is. Comfortable on the ball, good vision and a dribbler.

"It's tough for him coming back, having been away last season, and getting back to how we play. It's a different style to most of the other teams.

"He has had a good pre-season up to now, and the more minutes he gets in and around the boys in these games, the closer he will be.

"You try to give him some advice. He's a confident lad and he has a great mindset. He doesn't need too much guidance.

"But hopefully all the boys can help him on the way. I see him making a big impact this year. Any help we can give him can help him settle in and get up to speed, and maybe don't make the little mistakes I made.

"If I can stop him doing that, with the talent he has got he has got a big future."
