Harvey Elliott pushed 19-year-old Liverpool player towards the Kop last night, asked fans to sing about him

Harvey Elliott encouraged The Kop to sing for Fabio Carvalho following the new Liverpool player’s debut at Anfield last night.

The night didn’t go according to plan as Liverpool lost 3-0 to Strasbourg. But according to Liverpool Echo journalist Theo Squires on Twitter, Elliott could be seen whipping up The Kop end in support of Carvalho at the final whistle.

Both teenagers played the full 90 minutes as Liverpool’s young team couldn’t match their more experienced opponents.

There will be better moments for Carvalho at Anfield, that’s for sure. Despite the result though, it’s surely a moment for the 19-year-old to remember forever.

Carvalho shows glimpses of what’s to come

Carvalho has been one of the real bright spots of Liverpool’s pre-season campaign. The youngster might not have managed to score during the friendly’s, but that wasn’t for the wont of trying.

He has continuously looked a threat for Liverpool whilst playing in a hodgepodge of different sides.

Jurgen Klopp has mainly used him from the left of a front-three, and Carvalho has shown many glimpses of his talent. However, it’s also quite clear that this may not be his best position long-term for Liverpool.

Not only are Liverpool not short of options for the role, Carvalho perhaps lacks the pace usually associated with The Reds’ wide players.

There is more than a hint of Philippe Coutinho about him, and the Brazilian did some of his best work from deeper positions.

That may be where the Portuguese prospect eventually ends up playing. Like Elliott, he is as technically gifted as they come. It’s easy to see him prospering alongside the likes of Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara in the middle of the pitch.

For now though, there’s no need to rush the young man. Early signs have been very promising indeed, but still yet to reach his twentieth birthday, Carvalho will be given plenty of time to find his feet at Anfield.

The warmup is over, now it’s time for the real stuff to start.
