A disappointing 1-0 defeat against relegation threatened Hull City at the KC Stadium on Tuesday night all but ended the Reds’ hopes of claiming a place in the top four this season meaning they face a battle to qualify for the Europa League alongside Tottenham and Southampton
The Reds have failed to find the back of the net in their last two league outings ahead of the game against Queens Park Rangers at the weekend and Ibe says the manager wants the side to start being ruthless in front of goal:
“He told us just to continue the way we’re playing, to remember the identity of how we play and, most importantly, to try to get goals.” Ibe told the club’s official website.
“The last few games we haven’t got a goal so it’s about getting shots off and the attacking players getting into the box when crosses are coming in.”
The 19-year-old will be one of few Liverpool players to come out of the season with his reputation enhanced after some very encouraging displays following his recall from a loan spell at Derby at the start of the year and the winger wants to repay the fans’ faith starting with victory at Anfield:
“The whole team wants to do the Liverpool fans proud and win the last four games, we need to look forward to QPR and hopefully get the three points and get some goals in the team again.”
“I think for the whole team the aim is just to win the final four games and see where we come in the league.” he stressed
