Harvey Elliott emergence

Last season Harvey Elliott was on loan at Blackburn Rovers.

Despite only turning 18-years-old in April the wonderkid was a standout performer for the second tier side.

He played 41 times for the Rovers, scoring seven and assisting 11.

This term he has been converted into a centre midfielder and has started back to back games in the Premier League.

The youngster was a standout performer against both Burnley and Chelsea.

His confidence on the ball and his creativity have been a joy to behold.

Harvey Elliott injury

Yep, here we go again.

Liverpool have confirmed that Harvey Elliott has picked up an injury which has forced him to withdraw from the England U21s squad.

He was due to take part in a qualifier for the U21 European Championship with the Young Lions taking on Kosovo on Tuesday night.

At the moment there’s no indication as to the extent of the injury.

Kopites will be hoping it’s just a precautionary measure and he’ll still be fit to face Leeds United this weekend.

However, the fitness issue does once again put the Reds’ summer transfer business under the microscope.

Twitter reaction

It’s fair to say that the Liverpool fan base hasn’t taken the news well. Fans are furious and worried.
