Harrison Ashby was in fine form for West Ham United against Viborg in the UEFA Europa Conference League at the London Stadium tonight.
The 20-year-old is a sensational young talent and he has proven already that he is good enough to mix it with the big boys.
Before tonight, Ashby had played five senior games for the Hammers. Tonight was his sixth and David Moyes is clearly a big fan of him.
We believe that we have a special young talent on our hands.
Ashby’s performance against Viborg tonight was simply brilliant. While most of his teammates struggled, the 20-year-old looked more than comfortable and aside from the likes of Maxwel Cornet and Gianluca Scamacca, he was the standout player for West Ham as far as we’re concerned.

The young Scot really was very good against the Danish side.
He displayed impressive pace and strength and showed that he has great awareness for someone so young.
Ashby showed off his talents in the final third as well with a beautifully struck shot from 20 yards out that was expertly tipped over the crossbar by the Viborg goalkeeper.
He has been described as a superb young player by West Ham’s official website. And they’re not wrong.
The 20-year-old put some of his senior West Ham teammates to shame tonight with his performance at the London Stadium against Viborg in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
Harrison Ashby seems to have everything needed to go on and become a consistent performer in the Premier League with West Ham.
It was a hard watch tonight, but Ashby was one of the few positives.
Hopefully David Moyes gives the 20-year-old plenty more chances to shine this season.
