Jones, who has been at Anfield since the age of nine, has scored five goals in 18 appearances for the first team, which brings his career total to 46 from 98 outings at all levels (per TransferMarkt).
It is no secret that Klopp is a huge fan of Jones. After the local lad scoring a stunning goal that saw his side knock arch-rivals Everton out of the FA Cup last season, the manager described the midfielder as “exceptional” as he vowed to keep giving youth a chance in his team.
Will Curtis Jones become a regular in Jurgen Klopp's side?
With this in mind, Klopp, a man of his word, is giving Jones the opportunity of a lifetime tonight. Despite the Reds carrying a lot of injuries currently, here is what the Kop faithful thought of his inclusion.
