Cups different this season - Jones
Goalkeeper Brad Jones admits the Capital One Cup has less significance to Liverpool this season than when they won it in February.
However, he insists that does not mean the players who are picked to face West Brom at The Hawthorns tonight will take it less seriously. A Wembley win over Cardiff secured the Reds' first trophy for six years but, since the change of management in the summer, the club has been undergoing something of a transition. That has not been helped by their start to the season, which has seen them take just two points from five matches and leave the club in the bottom three. Manager Brendan Rodgers is naturally prioritising the league and is giving fringe players and youngsters their chance in both the Europa League and the competition they begin their defence of on Wednesday night. "Every game we want to go out and get results so obviously last year was good for the club to win a trophy and we did well in the cups," said Jones, referring also to Liverpool's run to the FA Cup final. "This year is maybe a little bit different in terms of where the club wants to go and what we want to do."
