Harvey Elliott, like us all, is most likely struggling to cope with life away from the football pitch with the bulk of Liverpool’s senior stars currently in self-isolation.

He, like the rest of senior teammates, have all been quarantined and have been assigned individual training programmes away from the Melwood training base.

Elliott, 16, sent a message on social media this week calling for fans and teammates alike to ‘stay safe’ during this ‘difficult time’.

The Liverpool teenager like his fellow players will have to be a little more patient when waiting for that first elusive league title since 1990.


Prior to the outbreak of Covid-19, Liverpool were just two victories away from mathematically securing the Premier League with the Reds currently commanding a 25-point lead over current holders Manchester City.

Elliott has already been handed his PL debut back in January when Jurgen Klopp introduced the youngster on against Sheffield United late-on in a 2-0 victory.

Making the best of a crisis situation

The football shutdown may provide issues for Elliott and his teammates if it means he cannot access Melwood’s facilities.

Even so, Liverpool have already designed and tailored individual plans to suit the specific needs of certain players.

If Liverpool are to quickly wrap up the Premier League quickly after the return to football which could commence on April 3 when the postponement of fixtures is set to end – it could provide Elliott with some more experience in the senior side.

The extended season means that Elliott, as well as the likes of Curtis Jones and Neco Williams, could all have more of a role to play as the Reds chase down City’s record points tally of 100 top-flight points.
