Liverpool were dumped out of the FA Cup after a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United and afterwards fans heaped praise on young talent Curtis Jones.
The Reds took the lead at Old Trafford through Mo Salah but Mason Greenwood equalised just seven minutes later.
Marcus Rashford then put United ahead just after the interval but Salah’s second ten minutes later saw parity return.
It was left to Bruno Fernandes to settle the tie and his stunning free-kick 12 minutes from time was enough to see the Red Devils home.
Liverpool did put in a vastly improved performance and with some better defending they would have won.
The same mistakes are being made though and Klopp now has to help his team over another defeat.
Jones, 19, was handed a chance to start at Old Trafford and despite the defeat, he didn’t disappoint.
He has now played 21 games this season in all competitions and is growing with each performance.
Despite seeing their team lose to their fierce rivals, supporters were unanimous in their admiration of Jones.
Supporters think he deserves more of a starring role in Liverpool’s league campaign.
Here is what the Liverpool fan base were saying about the academy graduate after another defeat.
I must say, Curtis Jones is an excellent player. Every time I watch him he looks so comfortable in PL 👏

Curtis Jones btw. His confidence particularly when in possession is astounding. There are some things to work on but what an exciting talent he is. Very easy to see why Jurgen Klopp has been backing him ahead of more experienced options at times this season.
