Harvey Elliott on the League Cup final
“To see Trent and Havertz square up – you’ve just got to back your teammates at the end of the day. You’re there and you fight with them. You see them every single day.”

Elliott : “I probably spend more time with them than I do with my family. For me we’re brothers, we all fight for each other. If someone’s suffering, we’re all suffering, especially in a cup final. You need that passion and hunger, even to get the fans going.”
Elliott : “The fans need to see that you’re fighting for the team and are wanting to win. That thing with Havertz was just the heat of the moment; emotions were high for both teams as we both wanted to win.”
Elliott : “Then obviously the penalty shootout came and that’s when you let it all out. You let all yourd emotions out: you let out your anger, your passion, determination and desire to win.”

Harvey Elliott on why he wears the number 67
“I used to love players who wore the number 7 when I was a kid – Luis Suarez, people like that. I used to have my own shirt with 7 on the back.”
Elliott : “When when you sign at such a young age you don’t really get to pick from the lower numbers. 67 was just the next one available with 7 in it, so I thought, yeah, why not.”
Elliott : “At the same time I thought because I was kind of playing on the right wing, and to have Trent as 66 then me as 67, I thought it looked quite good.”

Harvey Elliott on his injury
“It was hard, but I used it as something to improve on. For me, because I’m quite small I need to use my body a lot more, so I though it as an opportunity to do some gym work in terms of muscle building.” #awlive [soccer bible]
Elliott : “It was an opportunity to come back feeling fresh and able to hold my own still and be confident in my body.”
Elliott : “In the legs, arms and upper body. Just things I probably wasn’t focussing on when I was playing, just because you’re playing week in, week out and you don’t have that much time to chill and recover.”
