The 25-year-old came up with the only goal for Liverpool in the recent FA Cup victory over Everton. Warnock has revealed how Gerrard was watching Jones as a teenager when playing for the Liverpool under 18 team at St George’s Park. Gerrard used to be fascinated with the youngster, who was gliding past players without a lot of effort. As a top midfielder himself, Gerard knew a thing or two about getting past players and coming up with great goals.
As a result of scoring against Everton, Jones has become the youngest player to score in a Merseyside derby since Robbie Fowler achieved this status in 1994. Unsurprisingly, Gerrard came in with compliments of the player on his Instagram account.

Yet, they showed a lot of skill, desire, and quality to come out victorious against the fierce rivals.
