Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Might Take on Key Role for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp made a statement that the problem with his life is he has spoken too much ill in the past and nobody forgets it. Ahead of the first European away match with Liverpool, four years ago, has not stemmed the appetite for jumping on every word that comes out from the mouth of the German.

During that time he was replying to a question regarding his infamous quote, ‘heavy metal football’ and four years down the line does not apply to his team. Currently, Liverpool picks up the words of John McGinn of Aston Villa, more like a relentless tune which usually hits the same notes again and again just as mental torture. There is no getting away from it.

However, the question is whether a key change is imminent?

The ‘mentality monsters’ have begun looking a little different in recent times with the control on the midfield which had been typified in the Champions League’s last season win. The early weeks of this season are being sacrificed for urgency, though not from the beginning of the game.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the front man for this change. He has spent 226 minutes on the pitch in 4 appearances for Liverpool. During this time they have managed to score 9 goals. Among these, 3 had been scored by him; while he helped to force the issue like his side often chased games.

He had been excellent during the 32 minutes he spent at Aston Villa on the pitch. He never wasted a pass and fired 4 shots. This is as many as has been attempted by him wearing the Liverpool short which includes his 90 minutes appearance. There had also been a crackling strike during the Carabao Cup match against Arsenal and the headline act at Genk in his brace of Champions League.
