Jordon Ibe is confident Liverpool can bounce back from their disappointing recent league form with a win against Norwich City on Sunday.

The Reds got off to a decent start in the 2015/16 campaign and scooped seven points from their opening three matches in the Premier League.

However, Brendan Rodgers' men have tasted back-to-back defeats against West Ham United at Anfield and away against Manchester United last weekend.

Liverpool meet newly promoted Norwich this weekend - a team the Reds have got a very good record against - and Ibe insists his side can pick up all three points.

“It’s [a chance] for us to make a mark in the Premier League and keep climbing again,” the 19-year-old told

“It’s vital for us to win because we know how it went last time we played at home, losing to West Ham. I feel the disappointment is making us a bit hungrier.

“We all know where we should be so it’s vital for us to keep going in each and every training session. Hopefully we’ll get back there.”

Bordeaux Match

Liverpool kick-started their Europa League campaign with an away clash against Bordeaux n Thursday.

Following the two disappointing domestic losses it was a much improved performance from the Reds in France.

Mamadou Sakho returned after not appearing once this season and was handed the captain's armband by Rodgers against Bordeaux. Liverpool have had their problems at the back in recent weeks, with Dejan Lovren being the main culprit, but Sakho proved to his manager that he could be the man to bring added clarity to the defence.

Jordan Rossiter was too handed a start in the middle of midfield and grabbed the opportunity with both hands. The academy graduate was solid throughout the match and displayed the passion and drive that was missing against West Ham and Manchester United.

Lack Of Goals

Liverpool have had their frailties in defence this season but they have too struggled to find the goal.

Rodgers spent a king's ransom over the summer to bolster his forward line, which included £32.5 million being spent on Christian Benteke from Aston Villa.

However, the Reds have netted just three times from their five domestic matches and Benteke's debut strike in his side's 1-0 home win against Bournemouth should not have counted as Philippe Coutinho was stood in an offside position.

Ibe has already made 23 appearances for Liverpool despite being the tender age of 19. He, however, still awaits his first goal for the Reds but believes it will come sooner rather than later.

"That has been a key point for me and it’s quite frustrating that I’ve not scored yet, but I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself." the England youth international added.

“But hopefully it can come sooner rather than later. I just need to keep getting myself in the box and when I have chances in front of goal I need to shoot, whether it’s inside or outside the box.”
