Liverpool’s 2-0 win against Wolves vaulted the club to 6th position in the Premier League table, and six points off 4th placed Tottenham, with a game in hand.

And the game was a ‘big win’ according to Harvey Elliott, who played the full 90 minutes.

“The boys were unbelievable, showed great determination and fight against a tough opponent. We all know what happened at their place. But [it’s] another positive performance after the season we’ve had and [we’re] looking to take it into the weekend now”, he said.

Players like Virgil van Dijk and Diogo Jota have recently returned from injury, and both made important contributions, with Jota assisting van Dijk to a goal. Elliott believes that the improving injury situation is crucial.

“We need each and every person in the squad whatever game it is. We need to make sure we’re all ready and we’re all able to apply a good performance in the game and give everything for the club – that’s exactly what we’ve done today, each and every one”, he said.

Up next are the Reds’ biggest rivals - Manchester United - who they will face on Sunday in the Northwest Derby.

“I know I’m going to sleep tonight and get myself ready for the weekend. It’s another massive game [against] United who are flying this season, so hopefully we can take this performance into the weekend and apply another great performance”, said Elliott.
