Jordon Ibe frustrated by lack of Liverpool goals so far

Jordon Ibe

The youngster is yet to register his first competitive goal for the club but is keen to change that soon, starting with the game against Norwich City.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Liverpool youngster Jordon Ibe has admitted to being frustrated by his failure to open his Reds account so far.

The winger scored a wonder goal in pre-season this summer, but so far is yet to register his first competitive goal for the side.

The Reds have been struggling to score goals as a collective this season, having scored just three goals in their first five games of the new campaign, with Brendan Rodgers keen to see his side take more risks in the final third and create more openings.

And Ibe says he is acutely aware of his own failure to find the back of the net.

“It’s quite frustrating that I’ve not scored yet, but I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“But hopefully it can come sooner rather than later. I just need to keep getting myself in the box and when I have chances in front of goal I need to shoot, whether it’s inside or outside the box.”

Liverpool keen to make amends for poor displays

The midfielder also says that Liverpool are eager to make amends for their current run of bad form when they take on Norwich City on Sunday.

The Reds have lost their last two games, with a surprise 3-0 home defeat to West Ham having been followed by a 3-1 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford last time out, with both results having seen them heavily criticised for their performances.

And Ibe says the Norwich game represents an opportunity to start putting things right and move up the top-flight standings.

“It’s [a chance] for us to make a mark in the Premier League and keep climbing again,” he added.

“It’s vital for us to win because we know how it went last time we played at home, losing to West Ham. I feel the disappointment is making us a bit hungrier. We all know where we should be so it’s vital for us to keep going in each and every training session. Hopefully we’ll get back there.”
