Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott continued to impress with another fine performance this week.
The 16-year-old once again looked fantastic in a Red shirt against Genk’s u19 side in the UEFA Youth League.
Barry Lewtas’ team ran out 2-0 winners and Elliott’s performance was stand out.
The prospect set up Liverpool’s second goal with the best moment of the game. He provided a beautifully floated ball to find Curtis Jones who happily slotted home.

Before that Layton Stewart gave the Reds an early lead from the penalty spot. The 17-year-old striker was brought down by the Genk ‘keeper before stepping up and tucking the ball home from 12 yards.
Harvey Elliott then helped Liverpool with a perfectly lofted pass to set up his teammate for 2-0.
Barry Lewtas side now sit top of Group E, with two wins and one draw from their opening three Uefa Youth League games.
The ex-Fulham player has been so impressive during his short time at Anfield.
Many Reds fans couldn’t believe we only had to pay £7m to the Championship club for such a bright young talent.
The 16-year-old has already made his first team debut and looked fantastic doing so.
Harvey Elliott was one of the best players on the pitch in the Carabao Cup tie against MK Dons.
He’ll be hoping for another chance when Liverpool face Arsenal in the next round next week.
Despite being young Harvey Elliot is making an impression on Merseyside and could well earn himself more first team football in the not to distant future.
