Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has insisted that Liverpool ‘can achieve good things this season’ and claimed they are in a ‘better’ condition than when they won the Premier League during the 2019/20 season.
The 28-year-old is in impressive form for Jurgen Klopp’s men and is set to face his former side Southampton at Anfield on Saturday.
“We’re a better team now,” the former Arsenal man told BBC Sport.
“I think the season we won the Premier League was amazing and the season before was really good. I sort of feel like that [season] set our levels and our bar very high, I think we were achieving new things and seeing where we could go.
“I think now that’s the level we’re at. We’re in a good position at the minute, not perfect, not what we would’ve wanted, but we’ve been in this situation before where we are chasing a little bit and we let the handbrake off and we go for it.
“I think we can achieve good things from this point.”
Persistent injuries and a lack of consistency means that our No. 15 has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot during his Anfield career but his performances of late have been really impressive.
He provides bags of energy and is a player that is willing to drive at opposition defenders – something that not many of our other midfielders are willing to do.
Hopefully, he can remain fit and continue the impressive showings to ensure that this season is a successful one for us.
