‘Milner was screaming shoot!’ – Liverpool match-winner Elliott reveals delight at Wolves stunner & admits disappointment at recent performances

Harvey Elliott said James Milner pushed him to shoot before he scored in Liverpool’s 1-0 FA Cup replay win over Wolves on Tuesday.

WHAT HAPPENED? Many would’ve expected Elliott to slip through Milner just 13 minutes into Liverpool’s FA Cup third-round replay against Wolves, but the 19-year-old took the chance himself and scored a sublime goal that would end up winning them the game. Speaking after the win, he insisted Milner wasn’t looking for the pass.

WHAT THEY SAID:”Milly (James Milner) was screaming ‘shoot’ as well so I had to go for it,” Elliott said. “Maybe he can encourage me a bit more to shoot because it definitely worked.”

He also spoke of his own recent form, adding: “I have been judged a bit on assists and goals and it is something I have been working on and it came off today. Personally, I have felt I have not been at my best form after the World Cup but a confidence booster tonight.”
