Liverpool’s forgotten man sends Jurgen Klopp a timely reminder before the top four enter

The Reds have endured a difficult season so far, but all hope is not lost in the Champions League qualification race and Jurgen Klopp may have an ace up his sleeve.

Liverpool’s next six Premier League games

Jurgen Klopp may have to turn to a forgotten figure to try to sort out some of his midfield woes at Liverpool after Curtis Jones rose to prominence with the England Under-21 squad.

The Reds academy graduate has failed to make any kind of significant impact at Anfield this term, making just seven league appearances over the course of the entire campaign so far. While part of that is due to injuries, Jones has also been overlooked on multiple occasions after falling down the midfield pecking order.

There have been countless examples recently where Jones was unable to make the matchday team, let alone come off the bench. The last full 90 minutes of him in the Premier League date back to October last year, during a 1-0 loss to newly promoted Nottingham Forest.

That said, his performance for the Three Lions under-21 side against France on Saturday night may make Klopp sit up and take notice as Liverpool prepare for the final stadium of the season.

Jones managed to get Chelsea ace Noni Madueke an assist before the Blues winger returned the favor two minutes later to help the Liverpool man score himself.

It was the sort of display from Jones that should give Klopp a lot to think about and perhaps make him desperately reconsider trying to bolster Liverpool’s midfield options next season.

The six-time European champions have been relentlessly linked with a move to Chelsea ace Mason Mount in a transfer that would surely send a direct message to Jones regarding his own future at Anfield.
