Jordon Ibe says he hopes to emulate players like Robert Lewandowski under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Poland international blossomed into one of Europe’s most-prolific strikers after he was signed by Klopp in 2010 before Lewandowski joined Bayern Munich in 2014.

I’m hoping my attributes – pace and strength and being able to go past people – will suit the way he wants to play and I can get some ­opportunities

Ibe was one of the only positives for Liverpool in an otherwise disappointing 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace at Anfield on Sunday.

The 19-year-old is hoping his attributes will suit Klopp’s style of play as Ibe looks to cement his first-team spot this season.

Ibe told Liverpool’s website: “He obviously did a great job at Borussia Dortmund.

“The fact that the young players he brought in were a big part of the success is very encouraging for guys like me.

“Of course, those youngsters at Dortmund didn’t just become a little bit better either – some of them, like Robert Lewandowski, have become players who are operating at the highest level in the Champions League.

“Hopefully he can help me and some of the lads here do the same.

“I’m hoping my attributes – pace and strength and being able to go past people – will suit the way he wants to play and I can get some ­opportunities.”

The England Under-21 international played a part in Philippe Coutinho’s equaliser in a 2-1 defeat by the Eagles at Anfield.

Ibe scored his first Liverpool goal in a 1-0 victory over Rubin Kazan in Russia in the Europa League on Thursday night.
