Match winning goal scorer of the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup, Curtis Jones admits he begged Jurgen Klopp to let him play.

Liverpool ran out 1-0 victors in the third round of the FA Cup, thanks to a wonder goal from 18-year-old Curtis Jones.

There is an old saying that beggars can’t be choosers. But in this case, the beggar may now get to do a lot more choosing.

Jones hit an absolute stunner from 25 yards out, that left Everton keeper Jordan Pickford grasping at the air.

While the young Liverpoudlina gave a man of the match performance, he wants to be a regular starter. The boy has had enough of waiting on the bench.

Jones admits speaking to the BBC, he has been frustrated with life at Liverpool and resorted to begging his boss Jurgen Klopp for an opportunity.

He said:

“It’s been frustrating at times being on the bench and then getting a taste on the pitch and then being back on the bench.”

“I’ve been basically begging to come on but hopefully I’ve topped it off with a good goal.”
