With Liverpool’s academy reaching the halfway stage as 2019 draws to a close, Curtis Jones stands out as the top performer across the age groups.

The Reds’ first team are competing on a number of fronts across the festive period, but with the new year coming up, those in the academy are afforded a break.

Next up for the under-23s is a visit to table-topping Man City on January 5, with the under-18s next in action at home to Blackburn on January 4.

The under-19s are in the draw for the UEFA Youth League’s last 16, which will be held in Nyon on February 14.

As with last season, there has been a contrast in success throughout, with Barry Lewtas’ U18s notably excelling, but the key positive will have come in the League Cup, with eight players making their first-team debuts.

But who has stood out for the academy in the first half of 2019/20? We take a look at the numbers.
