Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is an ever-improving footballer who’s going to do great things for Liverpool.
But he’s also a great lad and has obviously added a huge amount to the dressing room.
In this video taken yesterday, you can see him taking the p*ss out of Dejan Lovren for the Croatian’s interview in which he claimed he gave a rousing half-time speech at the Etihad!
“To be honest I was shouting a bit at half-time,” the 28-year-old told BBC Sport.
“I told the lads to wake up because it was not good enough and I said we were sitting too deep.
“I needed to remind the guys that we had 50 minutes to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League and we needed to give more.”
The Liverpool squad obviously find this hilarious!

But now for a nice word on Lovren…
The central defender was in our eyes the best player over two legs against Manchester City – all the more impressive considering he’s often been criticised for struggling on the big occasion.
Alongside Virgil van Dijk, he looks far more assured; crucial considering Joel Matip’s out for the season.
We’re backing him to keep it up until the summer.
