Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was given his first Anfield start on Wednesday and put in a fairly decent shift against Maribor.
The match in itself was largely uninspiring, but we won 3-0 and the Englishman played the full 90.
Below, you’ll see his full contribution from the game. What impressed us the most was his ability to win the ball and immediately switch us onto the front foot.
Liverpool are most effective when the opposition are out of position – and this kind of pressing is something Jurgen Klopp demands of his attackers.
Ox has yet to show true quality on the ball, in a game changing way, anyway – but this is encouraging.
