Leeds were coming off a humiliating 5-1 loss to Crystal Palace the previous weekend.

They didn’t expect things to get any worse, but they did last night when Liverpool humiliated their hosts.

Luis Sinisterra’s goal early in the second half may have rung alarm bells in the Elland Road away end.

Liverpool’s attackers, on the other hand, made sure there was nothing to worry about by looking ruthless.

During that period of dominance, Hinchcliffe was particularly impressed with Liverpool youngster Curtis Jones.

Klopp has placed his trust in the 22-year-old after he made his debut three games ago.

Jones completed 90 minutes for only the second time this season, so he was justified in his decision.

Jones’ performance for Liverpool was praised by Hinchcliffe.
Diogo Jota finally broke his long goal scoring drought in the 52nd minute, with the game suddenly hanging in the balance at 2-1.

Curtis Jones, who recorded his first assist of the season, set up his opportunity.

“It’s a beautiful finish,” Hinchcliffe said, “but it doesn’t take much for Leeds to be sliced open.”

“At first, I thought it was the wrong pass; I thought [Mohamed] Salah to the right was a better option.”

“It’s a beautifully angled weighted pass [from Jones], and once Meslier decides, Jota decides.”

“With the keeper appearing, all he has to do is nudge it past him.”

“Well, [Diogo] Jota gets the credit for breaking his goal drought, but Curtis Jones’ angle and weight of the pass was just sensational.”

There were calls to drop Jones from the starting lineup before their game against Arsenal last weekend.

Klopp, on the other hand, will be pleased with how he’s performed since joining the team.

Hinchcliffe praised Jones’ assist, and the Liverpool manager will value Jones’ technical ability.

Jones was aware that after barely playing at the start of the season, he could have been loaned out in January.

He’ll now be hoping to continue his form at Anfield for the remainder of the season.
