Is it time for Jurgen Klopp to throw Jordon Ibe in at the deep end?

Jordon Ibe

The Liverpool teenager is surely an option for the former Borussia Dortmund boss.

Yesterday saw Jurgen Klopp finally realise what a challenge he has at Liverpool as The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by a resilient Rubin Kazan side at Anfield. A goal from Ukrainian international Marko Devic had the Russian side in front in Liverpool but after Oleg Kuzmin saw red Liverpool must have felt they would go on to win this game.

But Emre Can was the only man to find the net as Liverpool toiled to a point.

So what should Klopp change up from his first two fixtures?

One potential option must be youngster Jordon Ibe.

The 19-year-old has so far been used off the bench in both of Klopp's fixtures in charge of Liverpool but fans are keen to see him get more playtime and he is certainly worth a roll of the dice.

The England under-21 international would give Liverpool some much needed pace and width in their attack. Adam Lallana has a tendency to drift inside and has very little pace whilst James Milner has lost a yard and tends to have his defensive hat on too much of the time. One of these is fine, but both starting makes like difficult for Liverpool when going forward.

Ibe is something different. Fast, direct and unpredictable he could be the Marco Reus of this Liverpool team if Klopp gives him the chance to shine.
