A clip has surfaced of Curtis Jones’ remarkable run late in the second-half of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage.
The midfielder picks up the ball deep in the Reds’ half, before going on a galivanting run toward the Fulham box, outstripping Andre Zambo Anguissa for pace, but sadly finishing with a tame effort to keeper Alphonse Areola’s near right.
It was, dare we say it, an almost Gerrard-esque show of sheer cold-blooded determination to grab the game by the scruff of the neck.
The No.17’s effort on goal was rather disappointing after such a fantastic cross-field run, but we have to say that the Academy graduate really impressed us with the attempt nonetheless.
His end-product will have to be worked on, of course, but there was a lot in that second-half to admire from the 19-year-old.
