Jordon Ibe vows to score more goals for Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Jordon Ibe admits he must raise his game and begin scoring more goals for Liverpool.

The 19-year-old has started the Reds' two opening wins in the Premier League away at Stoke City and against Bournemouth at Anfield.

Ibe had a prosperous pre-season, scoring a fine goal against Malaysia XI and was a menace on the right-wing.

However, the former Wycombe Wanderers man hasn't displayed the same form in the early stages of this campaign but it expected to keep his place in the starting XI for Liverpool's trip to Arsenal on Monday.

A victory for the Merseyside outfit at the Emirates would give them a vital three points as they push for a top-four finish in the league this term.

And Ibe feels that he can continue to progress and began finding the back of the net for Liverpool.

“I think I can play much better than I have done in the two games so far, especially with attacking the full-back,” the number 33 told the Liverpool Echo.

“But with more games, hopefully I will get more confidence and be better in the coming games. There is a lot of stuff I need to work on. I need to be chipping in with goals and assists.

“There’s a lot of competition here and everyone wants to start. You can just see that eagerness in training. 

"The gaffer gives a chance to everyone. If you prove yourself in training you will get a chance to play whether you are a senior player or an 18 or 19-year-old boy like myself and Joe Gomez.”


Scoring more goals is expected from the whole Liverpool squad who netted just 52 times in the 2014/15 Premier League season.

Christian Benteke's £32.5 million arrival from Aston Villa should help the Reds complete their mission but Brendan Rodgers will no doubt expect more of his attacking players to find the net more frequently.

Philippe Coutinho had his scoring boots on during the second-half of last season and struck two pearling goals against Southampton and Manchester City. The Brazilian has continued where he left off back netting another superb strike against Stoke.

With more attacking options, Rodgers will be hoping his side can replicate the 102 goals scored in the 2013/14 season when Liverpool went within a whisker of winning the top division. The Northern Irishman has accustomed Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino and James Milner to his squad who are all capable of scoring. 

Liverpool fans, is Jordan Ibe better than Raheem Sterling? Can he get the goals to help the club into the top four? Can you get a result at the Emirates? Have your say below!
