Ibe's cool finish after Joe Allen had diverted Adam Lallana's cut-back into his path proved decisive for the eight-time winners in a match of few clear-cut opportunities. The only negative for Jurgen Klopp was the lengthening of an already problematic injury list, with Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren both substituted due to hamstring complaints.
