'Unbelievable talent': England U21 star says Liverpool have a player who's an absolute joy to play with

Hull City forward Keane Lewis-Potter has been full of praise for Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott.

As quoted in the Hull Daily Mail, the England U21 star has claimed that Elliott is an ‘unbelievable talent’ after playing alongside him during the June internationals.

“Harvey (Elliott) is an unbelievable talent and he shows it every single day in training and playing with him,” said Lewis-Potter. “You just know that you’re going to get that quality from him.”

Elliott had a brilliant game for England on Friday night, eventually grabbing a hat-trick of assists in a 5-0 win. His season will come to a close with a game against Slovenia tonight.

Elliott ends strongly

It’s great to see Elliott turning it on for England. After frustratingly having to leave the camp with Covid, he’s now back and making up for lost time.

Despite being barely nineteen, Elliott is already playing, and shining, above his age.

Hopefully the late flurry of end of season form will see him head into pre-season in a few weeks in good confidence.

After a season which threatened to be amazing somewhat fizzled out in 2021/22, he’ll be hoping to impress upon Liverpool’s return to training.

Lewis-Potter: Remember the name

As for Lewis-Potter, he could be one to keep an eye on. Having scored 12 goals in Hull’s promotion-winning campaign in 2020/21, he scored another 13 this season in the Championshop.

That has led to a first call-up for England, for whom he has already scored – courtesy of an Elliott assist, of course.

As a right-footed, left-sided player, he is a menace cutting off the flank in a way typical of Liverpool’s forwards.

There’s no suggestion that Liverpool are entertaining a move for the 21-year-old. But given his profile and progression, he could be on the radar in years to come.

Lewis-Potter still needs to show he can do it consistently on this kind of stage. Like Elliott, he really does look like a player who could go right to the top, though.
