‘Sensational: BBC pundit thinks £4m Liverpool man will become a star under Klopp

Liverpool gem Harvey Elliott delivered a “sensational” display in the Reds’ FA Cup fifth-round win over Norwich.

This is according to BBC Sport pundit Stephen Warnock, who thinks the 18-year-old has a bright future ahead of him.

The Reds dominated the early exchanges as Curtis Jones came close to opening the scoring.

Liverpool didn’t need long to break the deadlock, with Takumi Minamino netting in the 27th minute.

Divock Origi controlled Kostas Tsimikas’ cross and teed up Minamino, who slotted home with a composed effort.

The Japan international then struck an emphatic second just 12 minutes later.

Ben Gibson’s clearance from a corner fell to Minamino in the box, and he rifled into the roof of the net.

Norwich pulled a goal back in the second half through Lukas Rupp, but Liverpool held on to advance to the next round.

“What a player he’ll be”

As was the case at the weekend, Elliott came on off the bench, replacing Jones at half-time against Norwich.

The £4million man gave a great account of himself, showing plenty of energy and getting some great touches.

Warnock loved what he saw from Elliott and sung his praises on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Harvey Elliott has been sensational since he’s come on,” said the former Liverpool defender.

“What a player he’ll be with more games!”

Elliott is one of England’s most exciting talents, and doesn’t look out of place one bit in the Premier League.

He suffered a significant setback earlier this season when he dislocated his ankle in a game against Leeds.

However, Elliott returned to full training in January and is now back in the fold.

It’ll be great to see how he fares as he develops as a player and gets more experience.
