Chamberlain Says Klopp Was Big Appeal For Liverpool Move

Unlike Oxlade-Chamberlain, who managed to secure a transfer from Arsenal, three stars of the league - Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Riyad Mahrez - failed to get the moves they wanted on the final day of Europe's transfer window last week.

Martin Keown has insisted that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has no more excuses following his move to Anfield and has identified two Liverpool players in risk of making way for him.

Liverpool could hardly be in higher spirits as they set out on the short trip to Manchester City tomorrow hoping to make a strong case for their Premier League title prospects.

In the studio ahead of the match, the Arsenal icon and Sky Sports pundit was less convinced about the 24-year-old's motivation behind leaving the Gunners.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was introduced at half time for Mohammed Salah, but made little impact as Pep Guardiola's men exposed 10-man Liverpool.

Thierry Henry launches attack at former Arsenal midfield Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, saying he doesn't know what he's actually good at. Wenger was emphatic about Nelson's chances in the first team and the player is ready to take up that challenge, having already progressed to the Under-23s. I'm thinking 'are you telling us what you didn't have at Arsenal?' Are you looking for something else?

Henderson said, as quoted by the Mirror: "Well, I think, you'd have seen him [Klopp] on the sidelines, he's very passionate".

You also have to bring something to the table.

"It's a club I've admired for years, the players that have been here and now the manager".

He stood out immediately because of his pace and skills and his attitude in such a big game for a young player; I remember him chasing back to make a brilliant challenge on Mkhitaryan in the box to save a certain goal.

The winger was on worldwide duty with England when the transfer wheels were set in motion and underwent a medical with the Reds at England's training facility at St. George's Park. 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.
