Liverpool have got some talented youngsters on the books, some of them are even breaking into the first team. Curtis Jones made his Champions League debut in the week and Neco Williams has been impressing at international level. One of our brightest talents is currently on loan and is giving a good account of himself. Twitter has been raving over Harvey Elliott after his strong showing for Blackburn Rovers.
Harvey Elliott loan
Liverpool typically play the youngsters in the EFL Cup. This has been a proving ground for our teenage talents during the Jürgen Klopp reign.
This season the Reds were knocked out early, falling victim to Arsenal on penalties at the start of the month.
Coupled with Xherdan Shaqiri’s staying at the club, this meant that there would be few opportunities for Harvey Elliott in the first team this season.
As a result, the youngster was loaned out to Blackburn Rovers on deadline day. He put in a strong performance against Watford on his debut and he’s followed it up with an even stronger performance this weekend.
Harvey Elliott Blackburn star
Harvey Elliott scored and assisted for Blackburn Rovers this weekend.
The 17-year-old had the opposition on strings as his side cruised to a 4-0 victory in the Championship.
His goal showed a strong finishing ability and great positioning, his assist showcased what he’s all about: playing a neat one two around the defender before picking out his man in the box.
Twitter raves over Elliott
Some believed he showed a maturity beyond his years.
He’s not 17, he looks too comfortable

One tweeter may have gone a bit overboard with the praise.
Already better than Havertz
