By Matty Orme,
Liverpool's campaign has went from bad to worse for Jurgen Klopp's side, out of both domestic cups and a top four challenge on their hands, youngster Harvey Elliot has given his verdict
Nobody would of predicted the drastic decline in Liverpool's form at the tail end of the previous campaign, Jurgen Klopp's side came closer than anyone had before them to claim an elusive quadruple.
Finnishing the season with a domestic double, narrowly missing out on the Premier League title on the last day of the season, before missing out on the clubs seventh Uefa Champions League crown in Paris weeks later with a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid in a fixture that Liverpool dominated.
Fast forward to the present day, and Liverpool find themselves knocked out of both domestic cup campaigns, a battle to reach the top four in the Premier League after only eight wins in the opening 19 games and an Champions League last 16 clash against last years winners, Real Madrid.
The side bowed out of the FA Cup in the forth round on Sunday after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion, a shining spark of the fixture was that of 19 year old midfielder Harvey Elliot.
Elliot joined the side in the summer of 2019 and has quickly grown into a firm fan favorite within Jurgen Klopp's side. Following the defeat to Brighton the teenager stated that the performance is down to the players, and its also on them to ensure that the form is put right.
Speaking exclusively to the official club website the midfielder said "We have to keep fighting for the fans and for the badge,
"It’s been a tough season so far. In training tomorrow and throughout the week, we have to work to put things right. It’s down to us. It’s another tough opponent in the next game. We need to look at ourselves but, at the same time, pick ourselves up.
"The reason we have been so successful is because of the amount of fight we have, the work we put in on the training pitch, and the hunger and desire to play for the fans and the club. We always believe."
