Well now, the kids absolutely showed up to play today against a strong Everton side in the FA Cup third round match. As you’d expect from such a young, patchwork side, Liverpool were far from great through the entirety of the match, but they certainly played well enough to deserve the 1-0 win. Adrian was immense in the first half, while Harvey Elliott and Necco (Wafer) Williams ran the right side of the pitch against Lucas Digne. Curtis Jones scored an absolute belter in the second half over Jordan Pickford’s outstretched little arms. Joe Gomez quietly kept things from falling apart at the back, and Pedro Chirivella showed that he has the class to be playing regularly somewhere.
