Following a 3-1 victory over defending Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday - a result that saw him pick up his first win as Reds boss - the German has received praised from yet another one of his players in winger Jordan Ibe.

The Englishman insists he feels like a new player under Klopp and that the rest of the squad is learning a lot under his tutelage.

The youngster told Liverpoolfc.com: "There is a lot of learning in training. There are times when we are watching and he is explaining something.

"We have quite a few meetings where he shows us things on video from previous games. It's great to learn and I'm enjoying it.

"Everyone's happy with the win [against Chelsea], it was fully deserved. Hopefully we can continue and start picking up more points.

"With the new manager, everything is fresh. I feel like a new player and it's for me to keep improving and trying to stand out in training.

"I feel good - the whole team are feeling great and fresh."

Liverpool had to recover from conceding an early goal to take all three points at Stamford Bridge and it is that kind of never-say-die mentality that Klopp is trying to instill amongst his players, according to Ibe.

"It was one of the most important things the new manager has said - we need to be a team who can be 2-0 down and know there is still time for us to get a goal," he continued.

"It could be in the last 10 minutes, so it's just about having a mentality that is like 'it's now up to us to go and get two goals, and then a third one'.

"It was great for the team to come back from 1-0 down because it is difficult to do that and beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It was great."

The Reds next face a trip to Russia to face Rubin Kazan in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, and will be looking to kick on from a morale boosting week that has seen them progress in the Capital One Cup and earn their manager his first league win.

The fixture also provides a chance for youngsters like Ibe to stake a claim for a place in the first team, as Klopp may decide to give a few of his first team players some rest ahead of their league tie against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.
