Darwin Nunez will be the talk of the town in Liverpool tonight after netting against Fulham but Harvey Elliott's role in the build-up to the goal hasn't gone unnoticed either.
The 19-year-old played a gorgeous first-time, round-the-corner pass to put Mo Salah through seconds before the Egyptian picked out Nunez in the six-yard area for his first Premier League goal, and fans on social media were keen to recognise the youngster's impact.
"The touch by Harvey Elliott to open up the field and play Salah in so that he can set up Nunez was sensational," one Liverpool fan tweeted.

"Don’t overlook Harvey Elliott in that goal," another commented, while a third wrote: "That first-time pass by Harvey Elliott to Mo Salah is a thing of beauty."
One supporter even suggested that Elliott deserved to start in front of captain Jordan Henderson: "Harvey Elliott contributes straight away, I am not kidding when I say Henderson should never start RCM again if Elliott is available."
Elliott became the youngest player ever to start a game for Liverpool back in 2019, mere weeks after joining the club from Saturday's opponents Fulham for an undisclosed fee.
Should Harvey Elliott start for Liverpool? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
He spent the following season on loan at Championship side Blackburn before making 11 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side across the 2021/22 campaign – and probably would've made more had he not needed ankle surgery.
Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic put the hosts ahead on Saturday before Nunez's neat flick brought Liverpool level. The home side went ahead again via a Mitrovic penalty minutes later, though Salah's late tap-in ensured the points were shared.
