It seems Liverpool starlet Jordon Ibe is close to mastering the 'fake pass' - a trick made famous by the likes of Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho. He produced a fantastic fake pass against Bournemouth last month and repeated the trick against Swansea City on Sunday afternoon.

Ibe is currently playing with real confidence under Jurgen Klopp, who has taken a shine to the 19-year-old since arriving at Anfield last month, and has clearly been given permission by his manager to express himself on the pitch.

Against the Swans, the talented teenager produced another impressive fake pass - although he did look before playing the ball on this occasion - and you can view it by scrolling down to the video on this page or by clicking HERE.

Ibe produced another assured performance as Liverpool recorded a vital 1-0 victory over Swansea.

The England Under-21 international was subbed off in the fifth minute of stoppage time for Kolo Toure and hasn't looked out of place alongside the likes of Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino all season.

Ibe could be demoted to bench

However, Ibe has his work cut out to retain his place in Klopp's starting line-up with Jordon Henderson and Daniel Sturridge now back in action.

Both players came off the bench against Garry Monk's side and could now start on Wednesday night when the Reds go head-to-head with Southampton at St. Mary's.

But with Liverpool competing in the Premier League and the Europa League, plus the Capital One Cup and FA Cup, there should be plenty of opportunities for the in-form Ibe to continue impressing.
