Liverpool loanee Harvey Elliott is tearing up the Championship right now.

The 17-year-old added to his impressive start to life at Blackburn Rovers in the club's 3-1 win against QPR on Saturday, providing an assist in the second half.

Jurgen Klopp called Elliott an 'exciting prospect' after he signed a permanent contract at Anfield in the summer, and that much is becoming obvious this season.

In five games for Rovers, he's scored once and provided three assists. He's also created 17 chances.

The experience that he's getting in the second tier of English football is invaluable to his development and, if he keeps improving, don't be surprised to see him break into Liverpool's first team next season.

WhoScored gave Elliott a rating of 7.85 for his performance in Rovers' 3-1 win against QPR. His individual highlights show just how good he was.

He was also excellent against Coventry City last month, weighing in with a goal and an assist.

Check out the compilation video below.

Klopp's going to love what he's seeing from the teenager.

"Harvey is such an exciting prospect," the Liverpool boss said after he signed his first professional deal in the summer, per the Liverpool Echo.

"We all know his qualities – we have seen them this season in the first team and U23s.

“I love his attitude - love his enthusiasm - love his bravery - love the fact he has the right amount of football confidence and cheekiness.

“I think the public maybe doesn’t know the real Harvey yet and part of that is because we have looked to shield and protect him.

“But he is such a nice, polite, humble boy – who is appreciative of the talent and opportunity he has – and just loves football. He loves the game first and foremost, would play every minute of every day if he could – and he loves this club also and that’s a nice mixture."

Chances are we'll be seeing more of Elliott in the Premier League next season.
