Carragher: Jones and Williams will force LFC transfer 'rethink'
After half a dozen successful cup appearances so far this season, Curtis Jones and Neco Williams are looking like real prospects. Possibly even first teamers.
That's no huge feat either, considering what's ahead of them. But they've been the two main standouts, along with Harvey Elliott and Pedro Chirivella of Liverpool's cup games this season.
But the truth is that it's likely to be either Jones or Williams who breaks through first, given Chirivella's age, and the options ahead of him, and Elliott being so young.
According to former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher though, the two youngsters could solve problems for the Reds and cause a rethink of our summer plans.
He told the Echo: "They just make a jump and you're never quite sure when it's going to happen but they have to make that jump if they're going to rise to the ability of the first-team and it looks like he has made that jump now.
"When he plays in the younger team, it almost looks like he's a first-team player dropping down to play with the younger players.
"The one criticism of this Liverpool team is sometimes a lack of creativity from central midfield, and I think he could provide that.
"Whether Liverpool go into the market to change that, or Minamino maybe changes that, but Curtis Jones and some of the other younger players will be putting things in the managers head about whether he needs to go into the transfer market."
