Liverpool fans have been expressing their delight with Curtis Jones on Twitter after their FA Cup win over Shrewsbury Town. 

This comes after the midfielder’s performance in the 1-0 win caught the attention of numerous Liverpool fans.

Should Curtis Jones be a regular in Liverpool's squad next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Jones’ display in the match then led to these Reds fans taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the player.

Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans praising Jones on Twitter:

One fan even stated that Curtis Jones ‘had that Coutinho swagger’. Indeed, the youngster has been compared to the Brazilian in the past. There are similarities with a young Philippe Coutinho in the way Jones ‘drifts out to the left-hand side and the manner in which he can glide past defenders with a swivel of the hips and a sharp change of pace’ (as per Goal).

The 19-year-old played the full 90 minutes of the win against the League One side to see the Reds proceed to the next round of the FA Cup, and received a rating of 8/10 (Liverpool Echo). The midfielder has made 25 appearances for the Liverpool first-team and the youth team throughout the season, scoring 16 goals and assisting seven (per Transfermarkt).

After Jones’ display in the latest win against Shrewsbury, some Liverpool fans took the time to praise the midfielder on Twitter.

What do we think?

It’s great to see so many Liverpool fans recognising and appreciating Jones’ talent and performance in the win on Tuesday. These fans will now be hoping to see Jones become a more prominent figure in the senior squad in the future.
