Harvey Elliott in Liverpool's 1-0 win over Manchester City

When Liverpool beat Manchester City, it was clear that the most impressive part of the day was how many candidates there were for the team’s man of the match.

Joe Gomez was recognized as the player of the match by the Reds.

Others thought Mohamed Salah or Alisson Becker deserved, maybe for their obvious 85th minute teamwor kthat led to the victory.

However, without achieving higher levels than some of his teammates, Harvey Elliott also showed great effort.

While on the pitch for 73 minutes, the young midfielder proved his passing capabilities while also providing a number of insightful moments to the audience.

In the report with the highest count, the 19-year-old moved the ball through open play channels into the penalty area five times.

This was more than any other player from either side did, and it exceeded the rest of the Liverpool team combined.

These two events marked the Reds’ only real shot at a half-time advantage during the first half. After Elliott delivered a corner, Portuguese forward Diogo Jota received the ball. However, his header sailed straight into Ederson’s hands.

The former Fulham youth player shows a strong tendency to deliver the ball into the box. He performed this task better than any Liverpool player at Ibrox last week.

Now ranked among 8 Premier players who passes the ball into the goalkeeper area ahead of tonight's clash between the Reds and West Ham, Elliott stands alone among his Liverpool peers. 

Only three other players have played more passes in the 18-yard on a 90 minute basis as per Liverpool FC stat.
