Every time we post a clip of Harvey Elliott’s brilliant season in the Championship, we’re showcasing a wonderful pass or a piece of skill – so the fact this is the first time he’s messed up is testament to the 17-year-old.
Last night, Elliott dawdled on the ball and perhaps was a little overconfident on his ability on it with Omar Richards pressing him – which led to Blackburn losing it and Reading taking the lead – which turned out to be the winner.
Elliott will be kicking himself, but literally every footballer has made mistakes and he’ll become a better player because of it.
We love his confidence on the ball and hope he doesn’t entirely curb his instincts as a result – we don’t think he will.
Elliott has 17 goal involvements in total this season – as many as Jack Grealish ever got in his best ever Championship season.
Omar Richards dispossesses Harvey Elliott on the edge of his own box and Reading lead!
