With several Liverpool stars still injured for the FA Cup clash with Southampton yesterday, Klopp again named a starting XI of experienced players and youth stars. At least five current academy players started the game, with Jayden Danns coming on in the second half to get 27 minutes of action, where he had the most memorable moments of his career so far.

In those 27 minutes, Jayden had four shots, with two of them hitting the back of the net in the 73rd and 88th minutes, respectively. It was a surreal moment for the 18-year-old, who had scored a brace and lifted a trophy in his last two appearances for the club.

This reflects the impactful legacy Jurgen Klopp is creating at the club, leaving a promising future for Liverpool even as he departs at the end of the season. Despite current injury challenges, the outlook is optimistic for the Reds.

However, this is set to change, as the Reds are about to tie him down for the long term and give him a huge boost in terms of his wages. The youngster is being represented by Triple S Sports, and his brace against Southampton in the FA Cup would have surely put the club on high alert on how they must act fast to secure one of their future stars.

“I’ve supported the club since birth. To come on and score at the Kop End is amazing; it doesn’t feel true. It feels like I’m in a film,” Danns said on his brace after the game.

Despite the hype, Jayden Danns feels nothing but gratitude for the opportunities he has gotten in the past few weeks to help the club amidst their injury woes.
