After scoring against Fulham, Darwin Nunez will be the talk of Liverpool tonight, but Harvey Elliott’s contribution to the goal’s setup hasn’t gone unnoticed either.
Before Mo Salah found Nunez in the six-yard box for his first Premier League goal, the Egyptian played a beautiful first-time, round-the-corner pass to put Nunez through, and social media users were quick to notice the impact of the young player.
One Liverpool supporter tweeted, “The touch by Harvey Elliott to open up the field and play Salah in so that he can set up Nunez was sensational.”

Harvey Elliott contributes right away, I’m not kidding when I say Henderson shouldn’t start RCM ever again if Elliott is available, one supporter even argued, so he should start ahead of captain Jordan Henderson.
Elliott started a game for Liverpool in 2019, just a few weeks after moving from Saturday’s opponents Fulham to the club for an undisclosed sum.
