After impressing against Brondby on Wednesday, much was expected of talented midfielder Jordan Ibe when he replaced Can following his early injury, and he did not disappoint.

The former Birmingham City loanee really should have given the Reds a first-half lead after he latched on to Lambert’s through ball, but fired over the top when well placed. That didn’t detract from the fact he was Liverpool’s best player before the break, with his direct running adding a different dimension to an otherwise slow-paced showing from Rodgers’ charges.

After the break he found himself on the left-hand side of an attacking trio, and he continued to have plenty of influence before helping the Reds turn the game on its head.

He first set up Suso for the equaliser as he embarked on a mazy run across the width of the pitch before allowing the Spaniard to curl home before yet another turn of pace left three Preston defenders in his wake, gifting Kristoffer Peterson the chance to slide home the winner from Ibe’s pullback.
