Liverpool boss Klopp insists Oxlade-Chamberlain success doesn't reflect on Wenger

  • Liverpool Man City Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to play a key part in the coming week for the Reds, alongside Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner, who will be Liverpool's only senior midfielders for next week's clash with Manchester City in the second leg.

Towards the end of his last season with Arsenal, the England global struggled to find his best form and Arsene Wenger was blamed for the player's poor performances.

"Alex I would say has probably done slightly better out of the two".

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain praises the Anfield crowd after the Reds defeated Manchester City 3-0 in midweek.

"It was an awesome atmosphere, the best I've ever played in", said Oxlade-Chamberlain, who struck a superb second goal in Liverpool's 3-0 victory.

Liverpool will head to the Etihad stadium on 10th April for the return fixture knowing that if they bag a vital away goal then the tie will all but over, and a place in the semi finals will beckon.

"We're going to have to defend really well and we're going to have to go out there with confidence and attack as well".

"It was one of those nights where had I not scored I would have been disappointed in myself". My game I wasn't too happy with. In the second half they obviously came at us a bit more and we dropped deep at times, which we didn't really want to do, but we defended brilliantly.

Oxlade-Chamberlain left Arsenal for Liverpool on the last day of the summer transfer window in 2017. He also claimed Jürgen Klopp's team were ideally suited to the Champions League and the latter stages in particular.

"I could have been better on the ball and there are areas I need to improve on and can improve on".

"We definitely have qualities that are suited to this competition", he said.

"You don't get many opportunities so you have to be clinical and the three boys up front this season have managed to stand out in how clinical they have been".

It was the midfielder's delicious strike that was the pick of the lot, however, and Oxlade-Chamberlain was quoted by the Daily Star as he spoke of his delight at the goal that handed his side the initiative on the night.

"Now, he's flying, you can see the training at Liverpool that they must do".
