Harvey Elliott has sounded a warning to Liverpool's Premier League rivals that they won't let up in their relentless charge for silverware.
With Liverpool having been unable to celebrate their 19th top-flight crown in front of their fans due to the coronavirus lockdown, Elliott says Jurgen Klopp's men will be even more determined to defend their title next season.
And after showing flashes of his potential in a handful of first-team appearances, the 17-year-old is planning on being a bigger part of things next term as Jurgen Klopp's side aim to build on the dominance that saw them end their 30-year title wait with seven games to spare.
Elliott, who arrived at Anfield from Fulham last summer tipped for a bright future, made eight appearances for Liverpool's senior side this season as he starred for the under-23s.
And as he targets more first-team action in the forthcoming campaign, he has warned the rest of the Premier League that Liverpool are determined to be celebrating again next May – but this time with the supporters.
"Next season I’ll be hoping to break into the first team more regularly," Elliott told the Liverpool Echo.
"I’ve been in squads this season and I’m hoping for more Premier League chances, as well as more cup games.
"As a team, our aim is to go and win the Premier League again.
"We haven’t been able to celebrate in front of the fans this time, so it’s a big must that we put everything into next season to make sure we win it again so we can celebrate with the fans as a Liverpool family."
Elliott recalled arriving at Melwood for his first training session last summer, and seeing how motivated his new teammates were having just secured the club's sixth European crown.

And with the expectation piled even higher now that Liverpool are Premier League champions, Elliott will no doubt be pushing himself to reach ever higher levels.
“These players had won the Champions League and they were first in, wanting to be the best possible players for the new season," the teenager recalled.
“I realised I’d have to do that as well. I’d have to put more effort in to get to where they are and be the kind of players they are."
