Many fans questioned Brendan Rodgers decision to call Jordan Ibe back from his loan at Derby a couple of weeks ago. What was the point in calling back the young winger, who was doing very well under Steve McLaren just to have him sit on the bench once more? Well, it seems the point was to well an truly throw him in at the deep end because Rodgers has included Ibe in the starting line-up for this evening's Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
