Flocking to Twitter, many Liverpool fans have erupted over news on midfielder Curtis Jones and his eye injury sustained prior to the international break.
The 20-year-old has been out of action since picking up the issue in training before Liverpool’s encounters with Atletico Madrid and West Ham United (liverpoolfc.com).

Described as a ‘freak injury‘ by Doctor Jim Moxon, little is known on the specific timescale in which Jones will recover from his eye problem and return to the fold under manager Jurgen Klopp.
The club, however, have now confirmed in a statement that the Englishman ‘will remain out of action’ for ‘at least a few weeks’ as he continues his recovery.
Jones had been making sporadic cameos for the Reds in midfield this season, averaging an incredible 94.1% pass accuracy over his three Premier League starts (WhoScored).
That’s a higher number than any Liverpool player with more than two top flight starts (WhoScored), potentially highlighting his notable composure and poise when called upon.
Liverpool fans baffled…
As such, whilst taking into account the plethora of other injury issues sustained throughout the squad in recent weeks, it’s little wonder supporters have erupted over this update.
One fan even called it ‘really worrying’ as they question Liverpool’s fitness problems so far over 2021/2022.
