Jordon Ibe: Frustrated by Liverpool's loss to Palace

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe admits Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace angered everybody at the club – but has tipped them to bounce back after the international break.

Ibe, who put in another good performance following his match-winning goal against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League, admits the result stung.

“It’s disappointing, everybody’s angry,” he told the club’s official website.

“We played alright and we created chances to get the goals but it just didn’t come.

“[The manager] just told us to keep our composure because it shouldn’t be an excuse having a midweek game.

“We didn’t start the best, it’s just improving on that and starting from the first minute, keeping the ball, keeping composure, building into the game and trying to win.”

But despite the defeat Klopp is still enjoying a honeymoon period and there were further signs that his squad are continuing to get to grips with his methods.

“New manager, new system; we’re just trying to build and keep the confidence in the team,” added Ibe.

“Obviously losing will have an effect on some players but we just need to keep it going and hopefully we can win the next game.

“I thought the team did well and created chances, it’s just frustrating not getting the goals.

“When we get back from international duty hopefully we can work on that and start again.”
