Liverpool boss Klopp insists Oxlade-Chamberlain success doesn't reflect on Wenger

Arsene Wenger the Arsenal manager looks dejected after their defeat during the Premier League match between Stoke City and Arsenal at Bet365 Stadium

"It's an unbelievable place to play, it was stable, you build relationships, but I felt I had to do it for football reasons to try and better myself".

It was a sweet strike that the former Arsenal star admits he couldn't have hit better and Oxlade-Chamberlain is now backing himself to do it more often.

Oxlade-Chamberlain doubled their advantage nine minutes later with a powerful drive from 25 yards which left Ederson no chance before Sadio Mane headed in a third just after the half-hour mark.

When asked about the 24-year-old, Klopp delivered a brilliant answer on why Oxlade-Chamberlain has found a new lease of life after six years at Arsenal and a hard start at Liverpool. Depending on perspective, Oxlade-Chamberlain's time at Arsenal might be taken as further evidence of Arsene Wenger's late-career struggle to fully develop youngsters - see Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs, Calum Chambers, Serge Gnabry and Walcott among others - or a sign of some competitive and psychological malaise in the dressing room which caused so much potential to drift by the wayside.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has thanked Liverpool fans for generating a "horrible" atmosphere for Manchester City on Wednesday and believes it disturbed Pep Guardiola's players during the Champions League quarter-final.

"Since he's come to Liverpool, after a slow start, he's gathering momentum at a crucial part of the season and he's becoming a very, very important player to this Liverpool side at the moment", he explained. It definitely shows why I wanted to come here.

"I think it's the same for Theo really, he needed to get away". That gives you the opportunity to do things you're not used to, and that's what helped him. "This was one of those nights where, had I not scored, I would have been disappointed in myself but ultimately if the team wins, especially in a game like that, I am obviously happy".

"We definitely have qualities that are suited to this competition", he added.

"I could have been better on the ball and there are areas I need to improve on and can improve on". The three boys up front this season have stood out in how clinical they have been.

"The loyalty I had for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger meant I could do it the right way".
