Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Signs for Liverpool from Arsenal on Deadline Day

  • It was an unhappy debut for Oxlade Chamberlain as his new Liverpool side were thrashed by Manchester City

Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24, completed a deadline-day switch to Anfield in a deal worth up to £40 million, having entered the final 12 months of his Arsenal contract.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was named on the bench for his first fixture as a Liverpool player, with Klopp selecting him among the substitutes for a crunch clash away at fellow Premier League title hopefuls Manchester City.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal at the age of 18 from Southampton after coming through the youth ranks at St Mary's, going on to make 198 first team appearances in all competitions for the Gunners.

"When you sign for a big club like Arsenal, an incredible club, you don't really envisage yourself leaving".

Chamberlain has now revealed that the prospect of playing under Liverpool gaffer Jurgen Klopp masterminded his decision to have disappointed Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.

I hear him out but you also have to bring something yourself.

Quoting a text message he had received from Sachin Tendulkar, Lara referred to it as "a success the entire world needed". India is likely to begin 2018 in South Africa and is slotted to play four Tests and limited overs series.

Failing to get Thomas Lemar over the line will also have disappointed Klopp as Liverpool need alternative ways to progress the ball to the forward line, which Lemar's vision and technique would have greatly helped with.

However, despite many pundits questioning the move, former England captain Pearce told The Debate the Reds are the ideal team for the player.

"Even in the games, you sit there before the games and even in players' minds they have no clarity". The kind of full-throttle football that the manager wants us to play, he'll be a fantastic addition and give us options - which is something we didn't have at stages last season.

The young winger had seen his role at Arsenal decline - with the arrival of players like Alexis Sanchez penalising him.

I actually don't know, it's a bit tricky on the wings to play for Liverpool and as a No.10 - Coutinho is back.

Yet the manager hailed that "even when he's not physically in the best shape he's still hard-working" and that in recent weeks "everything came back" and he "played brilliant football".
