Liverpool have been shipping out a number of talents on loan this season. We have just seen Rhys Williams’ spell at Kidderminster Harriers extended, in January we have also seen Rhian Brewster, Herbie Kane and Isaac Christie-Davies depart on temporary moves. One player needs to impress more than others but unfortunately we can’t judge Harry Wilson when Bournemouth are playing this poorly.

Wilson joined the Cherries at the start of the season. The Welshman had a strong pre-season with Liverpool – it will be a while before we forget his long range stunner against Lyon.

The right winger has managed 14 starts for Eddie Howe’s side, netting six goals along the way – including a memorable free kick against Manchester City.

Unfortunately for Liverpool and Harry Wilson, Bournemouth have been in dreadful form in recent months and now find themselves in the relegation zone.

At the weekend The Cherries fell to a 3-0 home defeat against a resurgent Watford side. It was a frankly pathetic display from the South Coast side.

 

Harry Wilson was arguably the only bright spark for Bournemouth. The Welshman’s link up play was impressive, as was his movement – he was always showing for the ball and regularly found his man, darting into space once he’d played his pass.

There is only so much Wilson can do when those around him are playing so poorly. There were dreadful performances throughout the side but the overall inability to keep the ball, to find a man, was staggering.

It’s not time to call it quits on the youngster’s Anfield prospects just yet but he may need another loan move, in a better side, in order to properly prove himself to the Liverpool management.
