Football Index Youth Players Review


Curtis Jones having a shot on goal

1. Curtis Jones


Team: Liverpool

Current Price: £1.53


Review

  • Similarly to his last EUFA Youth League game, Jones was very impressive again making a lot of passes all over the pitch

  • He had several shots and brought a very good save out of the goalkeeper for one of the shots from close range

  • Worked hard - making interceptions and was determined not to lose the ball when tackled at first

  • He scored a very good, curling shot from just outside of the box into the bottom corner


Jones had another very good game and has continued to increase in price because of this.


Compared to other attacking, English, youth players at top Premier League teams, Jones still looks good value at his current price given the way he has been playing over the last few weeks.


Once Curtis Jones' performances start to gain more media attention, I can see him having a much greater rise in price as at the moment he is still relatively unknown.


Brewster working hard against Red Bull Salzburg under 19's

2. Rhian Brewster


Team: Liverpool

Current Price: £2.93


Review

  • Started the game well, he was fast and carried the ball well before assisting the first goal with a short pass to Yasser Larouci

  • Worked hard - tracked back at times

  • Hit the post from close range

  • Took the penalty very well to get Liverpool's 4th goal


Brewster had a good game and looked like he could be a natural goalscorer. He did not have very many chances, but, looked sharp and fast when on the ball.


Overall, at £2.93 with very limited first team game time - he is relatively expensive. His ceiling is very high and he is likely to gain media attention over time, however, based on what we know about Brewster so far he does not seem particularly good value at his current price.


KI-Jana Hoever

3. Ki-Jana Hoever


Team: Liverpool

Current Price: £1.20


Review

  • He was playing as the right center back of a 5 at the back

  • He did not stand out particularly

  • He looked reasonably solid and helped Liverpool under 19's limited Red Bull Salzburg to mostly taking long shots

Hoever is likely to continue to increase in price at a steady rate alongside the platform itself as he is so young.


His price ceiling is lower than attacking English players like Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster and so unless he stands out in a first-team game, it is unlikely he will spike up in price.


I believe he is currently priced about right.
