Ravel Morrison of SS Lazio looks on before the UEFA Europa League group G match between SS Lazio and AS Saint-Etienne at Olimpico Stadium on October 1, 2015 in Rome, Italy.

Slightly over four years ago, Ravel Morrison reminded the Premier League of his potential with a superb solo goal in West Ham United's 3-0 win away to Tottenham Hotspur.

On October 6 in 2013, Morrison, who was 20 at the time, picked the ball up on the halfway line at White Hart Lane and galloped toward goal, beat a couple of defenders and dinked the ball over Hugo Lloris for United's third of the game.

Considering the 24-year-old is now on loan at Mexican side Atlas from Lazio, it would be fair to say that he hasn't quite kicked on since that day in North London.

But Morrison is still capable of a bit of magic and a recent goal for Atlas is testament to that.

It never quite worked out at West Ham in spite of the occasional glimpse of brilliance and Morrison officially left the club in 2015 to join the Italian outfit after loan spells with Birmingham City, QPR and Cardiff City.

Sam Allardyce, who brought him to East London from Manchester United, told Sky Sports, via the Star, that he was the "biggest waste of talent" that he'd ever worked with.
