      He definitely has a bright future here. Probably the reason Gini would be allowed to leave on a free next year without a replacement (which won't go well with the net-spenders) as he's nearing the point where we need to make more of a permanent spot for him.

      100 % Liverpool player with hopefully a very bright future at Anfield.

      I actually like that saying. He's not reached the pot of gold yet though.

      Not yet mate but he certainly does not look out of place on the pitch.

      Exciting future ahead.

      oh so you'd have Jones starting ahead of Keita, really?
      Don't get me wrong the lad has tonnes of potential but he's still raw, as you say he'll get plenty of chances this season.

      I don’t think it’s ridiculous to consider that Jones could overtake Keita by the end of this season. I am beginning to have doubts about Keita, he is clearly a talented player but he hasn’t progressed the way I had hoped and I always feel our midfield is softer when he plays, the opposition are able to get at us. Jones has just as much goal threat and he is now playing with a swagger and confidence that we haven’t yet seen from Keita. He has also gotten bigger and stronger. It’s really exciting to see his talent starting to blossom like this.

      Yeah I agree, early days but pressing all the right buttons so far. Like with all young players it's a question if they train on. That's the $64,000 question. Certainly doesn't look out of touch for a 19 year old.

      He also has the right person in Jürgen looking after him.

      Really confident and composed on the ball. Never seems to be overwhelmed, and the moment doesn't get too big for him.

      I did think Curtis was of the opinion, ‘I’ve made it, I’m a first team player now.’ And his attitude on the ball was mostly having to many touches, trying to do too much, and often losing posession. Often trying little flicks that didn’t come off, and not generally doing the basics. Running into opposition players and giving the ball away cheaply.
      So glad to see most of that is now behind him, and last nights performance was as good as anyone on the pitch.
      Let’s hope he keeps it up. Clearly a very talented lad.

      Something about this kid isn't there.

      Confident, can take on a man, can have a shot and what's really impressing me is how much better he's getting off the ball game by game.

      Given Fabinho will have to play centre half for most of the season the reshuffle in midfield will offer him plenty of opportunities - excited to see how he develops with the game time.

      He has a lot of potential, that is true, but he's still playing a bit naively, in defence he tries to dribble out when he should just kick it out when pressured and then other times you think go on take your man on and he stops turns and passes the ball sideways. It will come though, I think he'll become a good player for us, as will Neco Williams although he as well still has lots to learn.

      Agreed. Curtis is maturing at an impressive rate he has a highly intelligent football brain. If he keeps his head on his shoulders I think he will be one of the best CM's in the PL in a couple of years.

      We're not Burnley though are we? Unless it's completely necessary we never smack it out, because inevitably it just comes back.

      Bloody hell, it wasn't a major criticism was it, I did also say I think he will be a good player for us, or did that not quite suit your narrative?

      There was sequence towards the end where he and Neco were both dicking around with the ball in a dangerous area, instead of getting it clear, that is what I refer to as naivety, but I'm sure Klopp would have had a word with them both about that and they are both improving every game I see them.
