Harvey Elliott’s highlights during Liverpool 3-1 Lyon show he is a special talent

Harvey Elliott made headlines for all the wrong reasons on Wednesday after an offensive video emerged of him calling Harry Kane a f**king m**g.

The video, which was filmed during the Champions League final, was circulating on social media with the 16-year-old having to come out and apologise for his behaviour.

But Elliott also made headlines for all the right reasons with his performance for Liverpool against Lyon last night.

The Premier League’s youngest ever player only played 27 minutes during Liverpool’s 3-1 victory but he had fans purring.

The midfielder looked so confident and composed on the ball, way beyond his tender years.

He looked to beat his opponent whenever he had the chance and kept possession well.

To make that sort of an impact against quality opposition as a 16-year-old is mightily impressive.


Take a look at his highlight reel below:

It may only have been a cameo, but Liverpool fans were getting very much carried away with his display. Check out some of the reaction on social media:
