Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
The Ideal Next Step for Curtis Jones

The Ideal Next Step for Curtis Jones

It’s that time of the year once again where attention turns to the transfer market. The January transfer window is one that Jürgen Klopp tends to shy away from where possible, but Virgil Van Dijk and Takumi Minamino are examples of him willing to use it in exceptional circumstances. However, whilst any further purchases in January are unlikely, it is possible that a couple of the clubs promising youngsters will go out on loan.  Rhian Brewster has already been touted …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …
Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter finals after a 5-4 penalty shootout win settled their spectacular ten goal thriller with Arsenal. Young Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos' spot kick -- the only penalty missed in the shootout -- and this gave fellow academy graduate Curtis Jones the opportunity to win the shootout with the final Reds penalty. The 19 year old Scouser, cool as a breeze, slotted low into the left corner past Emilliano Martinez …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …
Liverpool's Curtis Jones turns attention to League Cup chance on Wednesday

Liverpool's Curtis Jones turns attention to League Cup chance on Wednesday

Liverpool youngster Curtis Jones is confident of turning in another top performance when Arsenal visit Anfield in the Carabao Cup this week. Still three months shy of his 19th birthday, Jones is hoping to make his Anfield debut for the Liverpool first team. The young wide forward managed to pick up the man of the match award for his performance in The Reds' 2-0 win at MK Dons in the previous round of the League Cup.
What makes English wonderkid so special?

What makes English wonderkid so special?

There have been countless false dawns at Liverpool. Players tipped for greatness who ultimately fail to live up to the hype and fade into obscurity. Even those who do carve out a successful career in football regularly reach the heights promised. Suso is turning out for AC Milan, he’s been linked with Spurs and Barcelona but moves failed to materialise and he still calls the San Siro home. The Italian side are European royalty but they’re in decline.  Krisztián Németh …
Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days. Forget the 100 per cent start to the new league season, this is the period where the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's squad will be put through the wringer. The European champions will barely have an opportunity to breathe once the team are reunited following the international break and the return to club football. Questions were raised over the manager's decision to not dip into the transfer market for fresh ammunition, and this will be the period …
