Liverpool’s rapidly-rising star Curtis Jones has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Season.
The young Merseyside local scooped the award after an impressive season for Liverpool’s under-23 side. His 14 goal contributions in the reserve league added to an impressive overall campaign tally of 17 goals and seven assists (via Transfermarkt).
Should Curtis Jones be a regular starter for Liverpool?
Following on from his influential performances for the youth side, Jones was called up to join the senior squad and it seems unlikely he will play for the under-23s again after his achievements. The teenager played a huge role in Liverpool’s FA Cup run this season, netting the only goal of the match against a full-strength Everton side back in January.
His superb strike carried the Reds into the next round, where he also found the back of the net against Shrewsbury Town.
Loads of Liverpool fans have responded to the news and are full of praise for the young trailblazer. However, one fan in particular has taken a swipe at Manchester City, tweeting “don’t let Pep see this”. The comment comes after Pep Guardiola had a negative response to Jordan Henderson winning the Premier League Player of the Season award.

Honestly watching Curt grow up during those academy games and developing into the man he is makes my heart cry with joy ❤ Still cannot forget his hatrick in 8 minutes this season! Even though it was in the u23 game, it was only further insight into the pure raw talent he has ❤
