Curtis Jones reveals what Jurgen Klopp told him at full-time of Liverpool 5-1 West Ham

Curtis Jones reveals what Jurgen Klopp told him at full-time of Liverpool 5-1 West Ham

Curtis Jones was seen having an animated chat with Jurgen Klopp after scoring twice in Liverpool's 5-1 hammering.

Curtis Jones shed light on his animated post-match chat with Jurgen Klopp after his Man of the Match display in the 5-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final thumping against West Ham.

Jones bagged a brace at Anfield, with Dominik Szoboszlai, Cody Gakpo and Mo Salah all on target.

Liverpool's win set up a semi-final showdown with Fulham and it was Jones who was the star of the show.

In a post-match interview, fellow scorer Gakpo handed over the Player of the Match award and shared some wonderful words of praise in a special moment between the two.

But there was also an exchange with Klopp on the pitch at the end of the game, with the two gesticulating as Jones appeared to explain an action during the match.

And in the interview with Sky Sports, Jones revealed exactly what he and Klopp were discussing.

He said: "In the first half, there was a time where Darwin [Nunez] had the ball and I could have made a run.

"It was a throw-in. I was saying that I wanted to manage the game, I wouldn't want to receive the ball and give it away in attack and then they scored.

"It is what it is. No problem."

Jones has been with Liverpool since the age of nine and made his debut in January 2019 in the FA Cup against Wolves.

Following a number of midfield departures in the summer, he's stepped up another level at times this season and Klopp was delighted with his most recent display.

The German, who slammed his own fans for the lack of atmosphere, described Jones as "super fresh" with his energy and "acceleration with the ball".

Speaking afterwards, Klopp said: "He did even better to be honest, because he added in his game the acceleration with the ball, which is really important.

"You cannot do that against each opponent, but there are some opponents where you can do it, when you pass the first line then you have to go with the ball.

"His second goal is now a crazy goal because you go pretty much towards the penalty spot from where he scored, that's pretty rare, but it's an important thing for him to do. Yes, it was a really good game.

"He looked super-fresh, which is probably not surprising because he didn't now play thousands of minutes in recent weeks. In general, the performance was just good."
