With Philippe Coutinho stealing the show for Aston Villa against Leeds United, it’s always quite remarkable when fans turn to another player to insist on the Liverpool recruitment team keeping an eye on them.
In this case, Jacob Ramsey appears to have impressed a number of Reds fans on Twitter with his first-half performance against Marcelo Bielsa’s men, with the 20-year-old picking up two goals in the opening 45 minutes of action.
Should he not add any further goal contributions to his total tally for the season, the midfielder will have racked up six goal contributions from 21 games (across all competitions) this season.
That may not sound like a significant figure, however, when one considers his minutes on the pitch (adding a further 90 onto his 1,339 so far amassed), the player has a goal contribution rate of 0.4 per game.
For a player of his age, that’s far from being a bad number to rest your hat on at this stage of the season, and certainly indicates why the Englishman has piqued the interest of some fellow Liverpool supporters.
Ramsey’s one to potentially keep an eye on – especially under the tutelage of one of the greatest midfielders to have ever graced the Premier League in Steven Gerrard – though not one the Villans will feel under any pressure to part ways with in light of his contract running until the summer of 2025.

Sign that Ramsey up, IMO.
