Next Sunday the Reds will have the chance to play in their first final this season, where they will face Chelsea to determine the Carabao Cup champions. This comes at a great time for Liverpool, as despite multiple injuries to the team, the players are performing at an incredible level and keeping the team at the top of their game.

One of the players who has been at a high level is the young Curtis Jones, who has taken a very important role in Liverpool, and his level has improved a lot this season, being one of the most consistent players. However, Curtis Jones has never been able to play in a final with the Reds, as Curtis has played in a total of 4 semi-finals with the Reds but never in a final.

This places him with a negative record at Liverpool, as he is the player who has played the most semi-finals without playing in a final. This is very unfortunate, as he has missed the finals due to various injuries. So he could change his ways on Sunday, when the Reds take on Chelsea. Where he will undoubtedly have an important role to play as one of the best players in the team at the moment.

The doubt about this comes in the match against Brentford, where Curtis had to come off the bench after he suffered an injury due to a bad ankle movement. This puts in doubt his participation in Sunday's Carabao Cup final, where so far it is unlikely that he will be able to play. So we will have to hope that he can at least come off the bench.

The importance of Curtis Jones to injury-ravaged Liverpool

Jürgen Klopp will need as many of his injured players as possible for Sunday's game. As former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson said: "If Curtis Jones is not fit, I think Chelsea will win the midfield battle. So many people have realised the importance of Jones in this team.
