Liverpool media round-up: Rodgers back in firing line, Ibe makes international choice

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning…

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is back in the firing line after a disappointing 3-1 defeat to fierce rivals Manchester United at the weekend, according to the Daily Mail.

It means it is two defeats from five Premier League games for the Reds. After a promising opening three matches, the Liverpool boss now finds himself under pressure once again, with some believing that his job is on the line.

Following on from the weekend's game, young striker Divock Origi said that Liverpool will learn the lessons from their disappointing Old Trafford display.

Origi was a late substitute in the match against United at Old Trafford and said that there are lessons for the side to learn both up front and at the back.

He told the club's official website: “As a team we have to solve the problems, defensively and offensively. But I think the quality is there, so we just have to stick together and speak with the coach."

Winger Jordon Ibe has made a decision on his international future with both England and Nigeria both vying to capture the services of the 19-year-old.

According to the Daily Mail, Ibe has opted for an international career with the Three Lions, with the Nigeria coach confirming things on twitter.

Sunday Oliseh wrote: "Jordon Ibe's family informed me by a telephone call that he was giving priority to an England call up. We wish them well."
