Souness: Jones has chance of being a real player for Liverpool

Liverpool great Graeme Souness is convinced by the quality of Curtis Jones.

Souness predicts goalscorer Jones will be a major part in Liverpool's future after the young midfielder inspired the Reds to a 2-0 victory at Sheffield United.

Former Liverpool manager Souness told Sky Sports: "When you watch him (Jones) play, you realise he's full of technique. He can dribble in tight areas and he puts a shift in.

"(He's) 20 years old, he has a chance of being a real player for this club. The fact he's a scouser is a real bonus. He could have a big part to play in Liverpool's future."

The victory at Bramall Lane moved Klopp's Reds two points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
