Liverpool will have the pleasure of playing both Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge for the first time this season in Wednesday’s League Cup fifth round tie against Southampton and that excites Jordon Ibe.
The 19-year-old with Nigerian roots played in the weekend win over Swansea – a game that witnessed both players make substitute appearances after they returned from injuries as the Reds won first the first time at home in the Premier League.
“It was a big lift having the two of them back out there,” Ibe told the Liverpool Echo.
“Jordan and Daniel are big figures in the team and hopefully they will get back to form. We all know how important they can be for us on the pitch.
“We’ve got good players coming back in and also Philippe Coutinho is close to being back as well, so hopefully we will climb even higher.
“Anything is possible right now. We will take it game by game and try to do it again on Wednesday.”
Liverpool are currently placed sixth with 23 points after 14 matches so far.
