'So many good things': Jurgen Klopp applauds Curtis Jones after Brentford draw

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Curtis Jones after Liverpool drew 3-3 with Brentford. The 20-year-old was the big call in midfield for the fixture.

Liverpool came away from Brentford frustrated on Saturday. The Reds created a hateful of chances but conceded three scrappy goals to the newly-promoted side.

But there was at least one positive coming away from the game. Curtis Jones put in a noteworthy performance, earning special praise from Jurgen Klopp after the game.

Klopp on Curtis Jones vs Brentford

“I thought he played a really good game,” said Klopp, per Liverpoolfc.com. “He won in the first half the best balls for us pretty much – he was really good in these situations.

“On top of that, he was involved in all football situations. He dropped in the right space, he was brave in between the lines, so many good things.”

Klopp was quick to point out that Jones is still a young player – only 20 – and that “consistency is then maybe sometimes a little bit of [an] issue”. It’s really the only major ‘flaw’ in the Scouser’s game right now.

Every Premier League Team's Best Player Now Vs. 7 Years Ago

Statistically, Jones is a fantastic player and you can see what he brings just by looking at his Brentford stats. He wont three out of three tackles and scored Liverpool’s third. You can’t want more from a midfielder.

But Jones also stands out as a young player in the Premier League. Throw in the wonderful versatility he showed this week and you can see how he’ll continue to grow.

Klopp is certainly impressed and it’s as clear as day that Jones will be a special player once he gets his consistency levels right. Klopp sees it and it’s time the rest of the football world saw it, too.

Liverpool have a special one here.
