A young player is always going to learn and develop by training with some top class players every day, but there comes a point where some regular football and a loan spell will be more beneficial.
Harvey Elliott has the chance to do that with Blackburn Rovers after joining on loan from Liverpool, and he scored a goal and provided a nice assist today as they beat Coventry City in a convincing manner.
His goal made it 3-0 and effectively out the game to bed, and it’s a nice composed finish:

The assist was more impressive as he shows some lovely link up play before putting it on a plate for the striker to finish off:
Harvey Elliott's just made a beautiful goal. One flick over the defender, then receives the ball and cuts it back to Gallagher, who scores.
Goal + assist today. ?

He looks set to play a key role for Blackburn this season and they are capable of playing some ruthless attacking football, so it will be interesting to follow his development.
