Liverpool fell to a disappointing draw at the weekend. The Reds were lacklustre at Anfield as they were held by West Brom. It was a drab affair and everybody could’ve done a bit more. Speaking to the official club site, Curtis Jones has been defiant after the West Brom debacle, determined to put things right.
Liverpool lacklustre at home
The Reds don’t often drop points at Anfield.
We typically blow away opponents or grind them down through sheer weight of possession.
This game was different, last weekend we came up against Big Sam’s Big Boring Bus.
The Baggies arrived with a new manager and a decision not to play football.
Instead, the visitors sat deep, content to make it a boring game and hoping to take a chance from a set piece late on.
In fairness, their anti-football tactics work. Just because they’re ugly doesn’t mean they aren’t effective.
Curtis Jones on West Brom draw
Liverpool have turned to their youngsters during the injury crisis.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago, James Milner and Naby Keita have all been injured this season which has given a Scouse academy graduate an impressive run in the side.
His last game wasn’t his most impressive but speaking to the club site, Curtis Jones was defiant after the West Brom draw:
“I think in the last game I gave a little bit of a mistake away, but the player that I am, I like to take risks.
“Maybe I took one in the wrong place at the wrong time, but I’m a young lad, I’m learning and I took it on the chin, I’ll bounce back well.
“But as a team, we’ve a had a good run of games, we’re top of the league so hopefully we can finish 2020, which has been a bit of a mad year, on a good run.”
What RTK has to say
This is exactly the attitude we need from our youngsters.
Curtis Jones is willing to take risks and he refuses to get down on himself when they don’t come off.
This is the type of attitude which helps you grow as a footballer.
The Scouse has a bright future in the game, he’s still only young and we expect him to keep gettin better. Just don’t stop taking risks, Curt.
