Liverpool finally had a decent game of football this weekend. The Reds had been on a terrible run on their way to Bramall Lane. Jürgen Klopp’s men lost four on the bounce before visiting South Yorkshire. Thankfully the Premier League’s bottom club didn’t post much opposition. Speaking after the game Graeme Souness was full of praise for Curtis Jones but he warned him about getting cocky.
Liverpool beat Sheffield United
Wow we needed that.
The Reds have been struggling since Christmas.
Injuries have started taking their toll, for a few months the lads have been putting in pretty disjointed performances as they looked to make do with whoever was left standing.

It looked at first like it was going to be another one of those days for Jürgen Klopp as Aaron Ramsdale pulled out some exceptional saves in the first half.
Roberto Firmino should’ve opened the scoring early on but he was denied by the keeper.
The first half was full of wasted chances but thankfully we didn’t live to regret them.
Curtis Jones opened the scoring shortly after halftime following good work from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
An own goal doubled the lead following some clever work from Roberto Firmino.
Graeme Souness on Curtis Jones
The Sky Sports studio were full of praise for the Reds young midfielder.
He put in a man of the match performance in the middle of the park, always looking to get forward and always looking dangerous.
Graeme Souness was raving over Curtis Jones, telling Sky Sports:
“This player is full of technique, he can run with the ball and dribble with the ball and keep it in tight areas. He puts a shift in.
“At 20-years-old he’s got a chance to be a real player for this club. He’s extremely gifted and the fact he’s a Scouser is a real bonus for the club because of the passion he’ll have.
“He could have a big part to play, he looks at home. He’s got the ability, the athleticism, the attitude…
“Just two things stop him being a proper player going forward: a big head – which I don’t think will be allowed at Liverpool – or he gets an injury, God forbid.”
What RTK has to say
Graeme Souness is as excited about Curtis Jones as the rest of us.
The Scouser looks like he’s got a great career ahead of him.
He seemingly improves each game and – as long as he stays injury free – he should go on to be undroppable for us in the coming years.
Fingers crossed he keeps his arrogance confined to the pitch where it’s been working wonders for us of late.
