The season is over, prematurely, for Liverpool’s youth ranks, with the coronavirus pandemic bringing an end to a productive campaign for the likes of Curtis Jones.

It was announced on May 1 that, due to the pandemic’s impact on football across England, the season was to be brought to an immediate end for age groups from under-23 and below.

This has seen both Premier League and the U18 Premier League therefore finish before the full calendar could be played out, with the top flight deciding at a future date how best to determine champions and relegated sides.

Furthermore, both the PL International Cup and the PL Cup have been brought to an end, with the Liverpool U23s having reached the knockout stages of both tournaments.

It is a frustrating but ultimately necessary decision, leaving the young Reds to focus on the next campaign—which should hopefully begin at a similar timeframe to originally planned.

But stood out for the academy throughout 2019/20? We take a look at the numbers.
