Liverpool fans rave about Curtis Jones after hat-trick for under-23 outfit

The 19-year-old looks to be outgrowing under-23 football and a regular promotion to the first-team would seem likely.

As Liverpool’s first-team struggled to brush off the threat of West Ham at Anfield, there was no such concern for the club’s under-23 outfit.

The under-23 boss opted to select a strong starting eleven. Curtis Jones captained a side that also included Neco Williams, Ki-Jana Hoever, Pedro Chirivella, Adam Lewis and Harvey Elliott.

It was the performance of promising talent Jones that once again caught the eye of supporters. The 19-year-old has the golden touch right now and yesterday he smashed a hat-trick in five minutes, including a superb solo effort.

Jones has played twice in the Premier League, this season and also made five appearances in the domestic cup competitions.

It looks as though he will earn a prolonged spell in the Liverpool first-team and next season could be a big one for the versatile player.

Jones can play as a midfielder, a wide player or as a No.10 and his ability to plug gaps all over the park would make him a useful addition to Klopp’s team.

Following his breathtaking hat-trick, we looked at a selection of tweets from Liverpool supporters regarding the new kid on the block.
