Liverpool loan officer Harvey Elliott continued his incredible form for Blackburn Rovers with another assist in their 2-0 win at Birmingham City.
Elliott, who made eight appearances for the Reds in 2019-20, has shown why he is so well qualified since joining the Championship team on loan earlier this season.
The 17-year-old was named to the starting lineup at St Andrew’s and helped the visiting team take the lead in the first 10 minutes, setting up Adam Armstrong with a brilliant pass that divided the defense.

He now has four goals and six assists in his first 18 appearances with Rovers, drawing a lot of applause in the process.
“We have to be careful with him because he is still very young but he is almost the man we go to for us at the moment, he is playing well and scoring goals,” former Liverpool winger Stewart Downing told Blackburn’s official website at December 2020.
“The coach is probably trying to see if he can rest him at some point, but you have to play with him at that point.
“He will have ups and downs in his career, but he has that quality through a goal or an assist.
“But he fit in really well here, he has a good vibe around him and all the guys really take care of him. It is important for him to continue enjoying his football ”.
We also gathered a number of tweets from Blackburn and Liverpool fans following the midfielder’s latest impressive performance.
Harvey Elliott goes to the top, it’s actually strange that a 17-year-old has such good vision and creativity.
