Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen has blamed Harvey Elliott for his role in the build-up to Brentford’s second goal during Liverpool’s Premier League 3-1 defeat at Community Stadium on Monday night.
Brentford started the match strongly as Ibrahima Konate’s own goal gave Thomas Frank’s side the lead in the 19th minute.
Liverpool rode their luck for a while, and Brentford forward Yoane Wissa saw two of his goals ruled out by VAR. However, the 26-year-old eventually scored on the third attempt.
Elliott let a pass go through his legs as a dummy, hoping his teammates would get the ball.
But the ball ended up with Brentford, and the sequence led to the host’s second of the night.
And Owen was not pleased with Elliott’s display. The former Real Madrid and Manchester United attacker said (via HITC): “This is straight after a disallowed goal. I don’t know for the life of me in your third what Harvey Elliott is doing there? Letting the ball go between his legs.
“He can’t have shouted. It was never ever on. Then, all of a sudden, they get outnumbered at the back post and it is 2-0 and a mountain to climb.”
