Liverpool’s Jordon Ibe aiming to improve goal tally this season

The youngster also says comparisons to Raheem Sterling only give him confidence.

Liverpool youngster Jordon Ibe says he is looking to improve his goal tally this season, but must improve his finishing first, reports the Mirror.

The youngster is set for a bright future at Anfield after breaking onto the scene under Brendan Rodgers last season, but is yet to score his first official goal for the club.

He has caught the eye this summer though, and a goal is likely to come at some point, but he isn’t wiling to wait, admitting that he has been working with club legend Kenny Dalglish to improve his finishing and break his duck sooner rather than later.

“There is a lot of stuff that I have to work on - I have to add goals to my game,” he told the Mirror.

"I haven't scored a goal for Liverpool yet, and in definitely gets on my nerves at times. I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself. I came back early in the summer to work with Kenny Dalglish and Alex Inglethorpe.”

Sterling comparison a confidence booster

The young forward also insists that he is not concerned by comparisons to Raheem Sterling, saying it gives him confidence.

Sterling completed a big money move to Manchester City this summer after breaking through into the Reds first team under Rodgers and developing into an England regular and England’s most expensive ever player.

Many of course have been quick to compare the two, with some suggesting Ibe is actually better than City’s big summer signing, but Ibe says he will just focus on doing what has got him this far, and scoring goals as an added bonus.

“I aspire to achieve the things that Raheem has," added Ibe.

"To be compared to him gives me confidence because he is a great player and we both came through the Academy here. I need to keep doing what has got me this far - and get some goals.”
