Curtis Jones’ performance against Sheffield United attracted praise from Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness, who stated that the youngster “could have a big part to play in Liverpool’s future”.
The 20-year-old capped off a confident outing against Chris Wilder’s side with a clinical finish inside the box to open the scoring following a poor clearance.
With injuries having robbed Jurgen Klopp of several key midfielders, including Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, the No.17 has benefitted from an opportunity for a greater number of minutes this term than would have perhaps been available in a normal season.
Nonetheless, Jones has grasped his chance firmly with both hands, with his performances deservedly attracting plaudits – long may it continue.

🗣 "He's got the ability, the athleticism, he looks to have the attitude."
🗣 "He's got a real chance of being a proper player."
