"I have had this experience and feel ready. I have 50 appearances under my belt, which is a lot for a teenager.

"I feel 100 per cent confident I can go in and challenge. I'm looking forward to the fight and to show people I am a different player, and ready to play when called upon.

"It won't be given to me. I will need to work hard and train well and if I get my chance in a game, I have to take it."


, who has the record of the youngest Premier League debutant playing in England’s first tier at the age of 16, is excited about working with Klopp and insists that Klopp’s personality is his most important feature and the reason behind his success.

"I think it's just his personality,"

Elliott said.

"He's such a calm and composed guy. He's always having a laugh and joke around, and for that to happen the first time I met him was amazing to see.

"From the first second a met him I knew this is where I want to be. The first thing he did when I met him was give me a big hug, and for a manager to do that, and have a big smile on his face, is nice to see. You feel welcome and calm.

"You can be yourself around him, and it's the same with everyone at Liverpool. Everyone's just themselves."
