As thousands of Liverpool fans pointed out on the internet this evening, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has more Champions League goals than Arsenal this season!
Our summer signing came on late in the second half and notched his first goal under Jurgen Klopp, thanks to Daniel Sturridge’s subtle assist.
It made the score 6-0 v Maribor, with Trent Alexander-Arnold adding another before the referee put the Slovenians out of their misery.
Arsenal fans have been slaughtering Ox all campaign so far following his £35m deadline day move, made all the easier by the fact he hasn’t hit the ground running at Liverpool.
But tonight, our own supporters got some revenge, celebrating the Englishman’s goal at our rival’s expense!
It’s not especially clever, but sometimes, the jokes write themselves!
