Liverpool forward Jordon Ibe thinks "anything is possible" for the in-form Reds following their latest victory on Sunday.

But the 19-year-old says manager Jurgen Klopp has warned his squad to focus on their own results rather than concern themselves with what the Premier League’s other top sides are doing.

Ibe was in impressive form against Swansea at Anfield, earning the penalty which secured the home side’s 1-0 victory.

And the return of long-term injured duo Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge gave Klopp’s side a further boost.

They have now won six of their last seven matches and weekend draws for Arsenal and Tottenham mean the sixth-placed Reds are four points behind Arsenal in fourth and two behind Spurs.

But Ibe said: "The manager didn’t want to focus on any other team, just focus on us and keeping that consistency, keep winning games.

"It was great to get the three points and keep climbing the table. We just need to keep doing well.

"With good players coming back in, also (Philippe) Coutinho as well, hopefully we will climb even higher.

"Anything is possible right now. We will take it game by game and do it again on Wednesday (against Southampton in the Capital One Cup).

"I was just happy with the result, keeping that consistency with three wins on the bounce. Hopefully we can make it a fourth."

And Klopp has confirmed that Coutinho should be back for the Cup tie at Southampton in midweek.

"Philippe had a very intensive session on Saturday but we decided two or three days ago that we didn’t want to risk [him] for this game," said Klopp after the Swansea match.

"Now I think he’s fit. I think he’s ready for Southampton."
