Curtis Jones expressed his delight after netting his first Liverpool goal in 18 months, opening the scoring in an eventful 4-3 win over Tottenham. The 22-year-old midfielder steered a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross home at the far post just three minutes into the game, during his sixth consecutive start for Jurgen Klopp’s side. Jones praised Alexander-Arnold for providing the assist and spoke of his pleasure in getting on the scoresheet. After an explosive start that saw Liverpool go 3-0 up inside just 15 minutes, Tottenham got themselves back into proceedings and looked to have grabbed a late point courtesy of an injury-time header from Richarlison. However, Diogo Jota took advantage of a loose ball by Lucas Moura to fire in a late winner and snatch victory in the dying moments. Jones admitted that the Reds “took the foot off the gas” following the impressive start, allowing Tottenham to get themselves back into the game. He appears to be relishing his increased level of involvement in the team after another impressive display helped Liverpool on their way to a fourth successive win. Prior to this run, Jones’ last Premier League start came all the way back in October, during the 1-0 defeat away at Nottingham Forest. He has become a regular in recent weeks as Liverpool have got back to winning ways, and will be hoping to keep himself firmly in the manager’s plans between now and the end of the season.
