Jones featured from the first whistle and broke the deadlock on the 48-minute mark, with Kean Bryan's own goal sealing a routine Liverpool win, and Souness liked what he saw from the England Under-21s international.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the 67-year-old said: "When you watch him (Jones) play, you realise he's full of technique. He can dribble in tight areas and he puts a shift in.
"[He's] 20 years old, he has a chance of being a real player for this club. The fact he's a scouser is a real bonus. He could have a big part to play in Liverpool's future."
Jones has now made 28 appearances across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp's side in the 2020-21 season, registering four goals and four assists.
