Liverpool star Harvey Elliott talks about facing Brighton in the next round of the FA Cup
Harvey Elliott’s goal against Wolves in the 3rd Round Replay of the FA Cup propelled Liverpool to the next round of the competition wherein they shall face Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton and Hove Albion.
We shall travel to the South Coast of England on the 28th of January to face the Seagulls again at the same venue where they recently showed us levels in a 3-0 loss in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp and Co. would certainly want to get the better of Brighton as we haven’t beaten them this season and moreover, that particular loss was Liverpool’s biggest ever against the Albion.
This win against Wolves is Liverpool’s first win in 2023 and they would hope to carry on the momentum generated from this game into the rest of the season. Our goalscorer from the game against Julen Lopetegui’s side, Harvey talked about the same and also the prospect of facing Brighton soon.
Talking about getting the better of the Albion after recently facing them in the league, here is what Harvey told the club’s official website:
“It will be another tough game. The chances they created against us [last weekend] and the performance we put in simply wasn’t good enough. But it’s a stepping stone, as I said, hopefully we can go in there fully confident and hopefully get another good result at the weekend – we just focus on the next game and as they come.”
Elliott for the Reds
Altogether, getting the better of De Zerbi and Co. will give the fans a sense of redemption as beating the side is certainly not an easy task and getting a win against a strong side like theirs will for sure help boost the morale of the team going deeper into the rest of the season. Moreover, as defending champions of the FA Cup, a fan would expect the Reds to put up a good fight.
Elliott, who played a wonderful game against Wolves, will surely be key in the Reds’ campaign going forward. The youngster has impressed in most of his performances until now and is showing all the signs of an extremely bright future.
In 29 appearances across all competitions this season, his tally now stands at four goals and an assist. As he said, hopefully, the Reds get a good result at the Amex and qualify for the next round of the FA Cup.
Liverpool’s next match in the league is against Chelsea this Saturday and it is of great importance for the team to come out victorious against the Blues. This would not only provide a sense of redemption, but it would also serve as a great boost to the team’s morale and confidence.
