Liverpool goalscorer Harvey Elliott: Pressure on us facing Bournemouth


Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott was delighted to score in their 9-0 win against Bournemouth.

Elliott opened his Premier League account by scoring the Reds' second in the emphatic victory, curling in a beauty from the edge of the penalty area after just six minutes.

He said, "I think there was a lot of pressure on us players to go out and put on a performance today. We certainly did that, so it's a massive relief. To score five in the first half, it was a dream start for us. The boys played unbelievably throughout the game. And big congratulations to the young lads as well who have deserved their chance and deserved to be playing – they're the ones that keep us going throughout training. It's massive relief for us and we're just so excited for Wednesday.

"I've had a few chances here and there, especially in the Palace game, but luckily today the ball hit the back of the net. It was just a great feeling to score at Anfield – not just any goal but a goal like that, it's always worth the hard work. To hear the crowd roar, for me personally it's great and hopefully many more to come."
