Harvey Elliott's lauds Liverpool fans.

Harvey Elliott's long-range strike on Tuesday was his fourth goal of the season in all competitions for Liverpool.

Liverpool qualified for the next round of the FA Cup after Harvey Elliott’s goal helped the Reds finish the job against Wolves in the third-round replay.

Harvey Elliot has lauded the Liverpool fans for their support after the Reds beat Wolverhampton Wanderers to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Jurgen Klopp’s Red secured a 1-0 win over Wolves at the Molineux Stadium, thanks to a wonderful long-range strike from midfielder Elliot.

The hosts stepped up a notch as the game went on, but the FA Cup holders were strong enough to see out the win.

The victory on Tuesday night was Liverpool’s first since the turn of 2023, however, Elliott insists that the Reds need to reward the club’s loyal supporters with brilliant performances on the pitch.

Thanks to the fans

The Liverpool matchwinner told BBC One: "Definitely [deserved], a good turnaround after the last few results but tonight is a stepping stone for the next couple of games. It was the perfect way to go into the next game and hopefully, we can put the form right at Anfield.

"I have been judged a bit on assists and goals and it is something I have been working on and it came off today. Personally, I have felt I have not been at my best form after the World Cup but a confidence booster tonight.

"Milly (James Milner) was screaming 'shoot' as well so I had to go for it. Maybe he can encourage me a bit more to shoot because it definitely worked.

"The fans are a big help, by our side and thanks to them for sticking by us. We have the best fans in the world and we have to perform to the best of our abilities and put a show on for them."

On facing Brighton in the next round, he replied: "It will be another tough game, we were not good enough against them and hopefully we can go in full of confidence."

Klopp 'liked the game a lot'

Liverpool boss Klopp expressed his joy after the win: "It feels like ages ago we had a feeling of winning and playing well. We had to fight hard at the end which we controlled for long periods. It is great and the reaction we wanted to see.

"It was good from Harvey Elliott, especially after an early knock to the ankle. he fought through and the goal was exceptional. I had a few man-of-the-match performances today. We played a really good first half, had good periods in the second, and in the end, it was just passion to block the shots. A cup game is great.

"From the passion, we showed, yes. It is my job to help the boys and find the formation where they feel good from the start. Stefan Bajcetic and the whole midfield was really compact so it was difficult for Wolves to find key players like Joao Moutinho. I liked the game a lot."
