Video: Harvey Elliott shows off incredible shooting accuracy as he prepares for pre-season with Liverpool

Harvey Elliott’s shooting ability has been seen to full effect as he gears up to return to Liverpool on Monday.

As seen in a video from coach Scott Chickelday on Twitter, Elliott hasn’t lost any of his sharpness over the off-season.

The 19-year-old showed remarkable accuracy as he aimed for the corners of the goal in a shooting drill. With stationery markers then added, Elliott danced around the ‘defenders’ with an array of excellent footwork.

Elliott is in line for a return to Liverpool on Monday as the squad meet up for the first day of pre-season training. If he can maintain this level of performance, he could force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven yet again.

Elliott gets another chance to impress

By all accounts, Elliott was due to go on-loan for a second season running last year. However, he impressed Klopp so much in pre-season that the manager simply couldn’t ignore him.

With videos like this surfacing, it’s easy to see why Jurgen was bowled over by the young midfielder.

Having seen his star fall a little over the course of last campaign, Elliott will be hungry to send another reminder of his qualities.

There is still potentially a spot available on the right side of Klopp’s midfield. Jordan Henderson is another year older and Naby Keita is still struggling to fully convince many.

As a result, Elliott made the spot his own in the early part of 2021/22.

Reports suggest that Liverpool will hold off on signing a new midfielder for another year. That has partly been credited to their desire for opportunities for Elliott and Curtis Jones to continue.

If Elliott in particular can start to reach his potential, perhaps Liverpool can shelve plans for a new midfielder full stop.
