The former Derby loanee received a surprise start for Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby.
Everton and Liverpool went head to head in the Merseyside Derby this evening, with the scores even after ninety minutes. A scrappy affair ended up 0-0 at full-time with little action of real note.
Liverpool had several top performances on the night however. Emre Can in particular impressed once again. The German youngster did an excellent job on Romelu Lukaku playing at centre-back once again.
Liverpool also employed Jordon Ibe from the start as well. The attacker spent much of this season on loan at Derby County and was very impressive at the iPro Stadium. Liverpool recalled him and he is now a major part of the first-team at Anfield.
He played on the right-hand side of midfield, acting as a wing-back for much of the game and was very impressive in just his second Premier League start for the club.
He nearly capped off the performance with a rather special goal. He smashed a strike off the post in the first-half from range.
It was an impressive performance from the youngster who is now looking to push on and become a regular feature in the Liverpool first-team. Liverpool fans were certainly impressed, which showed on Twitter.
Here is a collection of the best Tweets on Ibe’s performance...
