      Be interesting to see where Klopp sees his future? He has been a bit of a tweener so far at times in the Mane/Salah role and we've also seen him as a central attacking middie. Must admit i like him in the middle, he looked comfortable in a slightly role albeait against weaker opposition. He deffo looks like he has the all-around game to carve out a position there. We are starting to see his passing range as he gets more confident/comfortable and he plays without fear from what i can see. Really exciting.

      Box to box midfielder, similar to Stevie G. Good range of pass, good tackling and good shooting.

      He looks like a natural in our midfield. Everything seemed so smooth when he was out there.

      After Gerrard retired I thought the days of Liverpool being able to bring through top, local talent was long gone. I'm trying to pick my brain but I think before Trent, Stevie actually was the last academy graduate we brought through who managed to nail down a place in the side for a number of years. Wouldn't really class Sterling as an academy graduate because he was signed from QPR when he was about 15.

      Saw the goals last night, didn't watch the game but I've seen enough of Jones to believe it's very possible that he could be a feature in our midfield for years to come & it's great to see. Near enough 2 decades of nothing coming through the academy & within a couple of years we get two top, top talents (one of whom is already world class)

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

      Very good player, but not quite sure how he breaks into the team or where he'd play, I guess he's more of an AM in the Keita position.

      Thiago

      Henderson            Jones

      That's were he plays.

      A lot of games coming thick and fast this season and I agree he won't feature all the time but when we need to rotate he will play here more often than not.

      Insert Gini for Henderson if you like or even Keita against weak opposition.

      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.

      Pretty sure I didn't say that.

      But in many games he'd play the Keita role for me and to be honest I'd have no worries whatsoever even if he was picked ahead of Keita for more 'important' games.

      Not saying he will or that he's ahead of Keita but he's that good that I wouldn't worry if he was selected

      Every top player, at some point it was decided he should be selected over somebody else. Fans can reflexively say "he's too new/young/whatever," but at some point managers give players a chance and they take it. Curtis looks like he's moving into that territory and, as Jürgen always says, he can only pick 11 for the team.

      I think he will pose a problem for the boss this season.

      Great to have those headaches as a manager though.

      Not sure if I'd have him above Keita, but as srslfc said I wouldn't be at all bothered if Klopp gave him the nod ahead of him.

      I know we've got a wealth of options in midfield now but for big games Keita himself would be fairly down the pecking order for me. Apart from being a more direct option than most of our other midfielders I can't see what he's done to merit being talked about as though he's somebody who can hold down a regular place. Ox has impressed me more when he's played in that position

      Although all of them will be behind our #6 in the pecking order. ;)

      He neefs to stay grounded. Be willing to play a bit part and learn from some top players sround him. If he does that its scary where he can go.

      Worst thing that will happen is England call him up it gets in his head then that he needs to plsy every week to make England, his head goes and hes off.

      Needs good people around him outside of the club I think in the coming months

      Well it keeps being said but Ive yet to see anyone tell them they wont be taking up the offer.

      Trent looks content. Stevie loved it. Former red Conor Coady looked well pleased with himself last week.

      If hes called up hell go and why not. What Im saying is he needs to stay level headed if he does. And not be left to think to continue being called up he has too move to play regularly.

      England cant help themselves when they see anything that looksl like they might be the one if they are 16 17 18 doesnt matter

      I'm not suggesting he'll refuse to play for England but I'd be very surprised if he thought it was the be all and end all, especially if he's playing for his local team who are challenging for leagues and European Cups. Can't see him wanting to trade all of that in due to fear of missing out on Nations League matches against the likes of Iceland

      Yes you sounded as clear as crystal. I'm sure Keita isn't perfect. And when Keita is *cough* rotated *cough*. That's when Jones can step up.

      When he came off the bench in the first game it showed to me Klopp has some trust in his ability as the result was far from secure but given what we seen from that game and the showing he put in last night that Jones shown Klopp he is ready for more.

      Gonna be a tricky one to manage because he appears to be one that will benefit more from time with the senior team than playing with any youth setup or loaned to a championship side. Gonna be a pivotal year for him, hope he can keep his head and see where he can go if he's just a tad patient.
