Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Liverpool exited the League Cup at the fifth round stage after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal at Anfield. A drab and forgetful 90 minutes ended scoreless and the Gunners -- through Joe Willock -- won the shootout after Divock Origi and Harry Wilson missed their spot-kicks. Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of changes from the Reds' Premier League victory over the same opponents on Monday night, but Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk -- surprisingly -- …
Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

It is a rare thing to see a young Scouser make the grade at Liverpool, backing up their early promise and becoming a hero to millions around the world. Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most recent homegrown talent to become a star at Anfield, but it has been slim pickings for many years. For every Alexander-Arnold, there are many who aren't good enough, whether it be Jon Flanagan, Jay Spearing or Jordan Rossiter, not to mention the endless individuals who aren't …
Curtis Jones: Now What?

Curtis Jones: Now What?

Curtis Jones has had quite the season. It started all the way back in September, with his second game in a Liverpool shirt against MK Dons, where he impressed. And he kept impressing, scoring the winning penalty against Arsenal in the EFL Cup, making his Premier League debut in December, scoring THAT goal against Everton in January, becoming the club’s youngest ever captain against Shrewsbury, signing a new deal earlier this month, scoring his first Premier League goal a day …
Does Curtis Jones’ rise signal the end for Harry Wilson’s Liverpool career?

Does Curtis Jones’ rise signal the end for Harry Wilson’s Liverpool career?

Among his growing list of plaudits, 19-year-old Curtis Jones can now add captaining his boyhood Liverpool into the fifth round of the FA Cup after this week's triumph over Shrewsbury. After long being touted as one of the many academy graduates who looks more than capable of playing a major role in the first team, Jones is now really starting to add fuel to that fire. Jones has impressed in each of his three showings in the FA Cup this …
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 …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …
Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of their neighbours Everton with a 1-0 Merseyside Derby win at Anfield. A superb goal from Curtis Jones gave the much changed Reds the victory over their fully loaded local rivals, condemning recently hired manager Carlo Ancelotti to his first defeat in charge. Coming in the midst of a busy run of fixtures, manager Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of personnel changes, with only James …
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 …
