Liverpool No2 Lijnders likens young gun to Iniesta


Liverpool assistant coach Pep Lijnders is convinced Harvey Elliott is set for a big season ahead.

Elliott, after an early season injury last term, struggled to find his way back into the first team over the second-half of the campaign.

But Lijnders says management have no doubts about the youngster's potential.

He has waxed lyrical over Elliot's talent in his new book, 'Intensity: Inside Liverpool FC', and made a particularly bold comparison when analysing the teenager's talent.

He wrote: "There is no such thing as like for like in football, but Harvey Elliott has some of the ingredients of Andres Iniesta and thinks like a creative midfielder."
