Liverpool have had so many problems with injuries this season, and this has led to them relying on their young players perhaps more than they would have expected.
Still, the likes of Jones and Williams have not let the club down, as they follow in the footsteps of fellow former academy product Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has become a hugely important member of LFC’s first-team.
This is a hugely impressive record for these two youngsters to have set, and everyone at Liverpool will surely be very proud of this special moment.
