"Self-critical" Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe says he must be looking to contribute a goal or assist in every game he plays for the Reds.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed a productive pre-season with Liverpool as he looks to establish himself in Brendan Rodgers' first-team plans. With Lazar Markovic, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino all competing in similar positions, Ibe is aware that he must be at his best to merit regular football.

"I'm not completely satisfied because I need to keep working on a few things, like my end product - getting the ball and finding someone in the box and trying to add a few more goals to my game," Ibe told Liverpool's official site.

"I'm quite self-critical. I like to think about things after a game - things I could have improved on, like maybe having taken a shot on or something.

"I know I'm at a young age, but in my position I need to have an end product. If I'm not getting a goal in a game, then I need to be trying to get an assist for one of my teammates or making sure I have a great game."

Ibe was also pleased to hear Rodgers say that he will be "featuring heavily" this season.

"If the gaffer is thinking I'm doing well, then it will mean I must be doing well at something," Ibe said.

"But it doesn't stop for me. The season is coming up and I need to keep improving and keep the manager satisfied with my performances so I can get a chance to play regularly in the Premier League."

Ibe started seven Premier League matches last season, but is yet to register a first-team goal for the club.
