Plenty of Liverpool fans have been congratulating youngster Curtis Jones after he scored a hat-trick during the under-23s’ 6-0 victory against Sunderland, leading one supporter to say he is already a ‘legend in the making’.
The 19-year-old was on fire as he managed to score three goals in eight minutes as Neil Critchley’s side steamrolled past the young Black Cats at the Reds’ Academy. The victory meant that they qualified for the knockout stages of the Premier League Cup after securing the win in their final match of the group phase.
Jones was previously showered with praise as his stunning curled effort during the first team’s 1-0 win against Everton in the FA Cup as they knocked their city neighbours out of the competition for the second time in three seasons. Manager Jurgen Klopp described him as “100% a Liverpool player” and is confident in his ability. One fan said that he “looks like Salah” as he continues to get among the goals, while another stated that he has a bright future at Anfield.
