The Daily Mail have Liverpool fans looking up with huge smiles on their faces ahead of a make or break few weeks for the club after hearing their manager gush about Jordon Ibe ahead of his return from injury.
Rodgers is facing the pressure as not only has Raheem Sterling decided to play hardball over a potential new deal with the club, but the Reds have also seen their top four hopes falter.
However, as one of our punters notes over a game of pool with our landlord, Liverpool have been handed a chance to break back into the top four after Manchester City’s collapse and we think should they manage to get all three points against Newcastle, they could be in with a shot.
Ibe is expected to return from injury against the Magpies and Rodgers claimed: ‘Absolutely outstanding, he’s looked. He’s got real natural fitness and he’ll come into the squad for Monday night.’
