Liverpool fans react to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain display vs Arsenal
A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after his performance against Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Saturday.
The Reds produced a brilliant display to blow Arsenal away at Anfield. They weathered some early pressure before going on to take a 1-0 lead into half-time.
The lead was doubled shortly after the break with Jurgen Klopp’s men seemingly managing to step through the gears and punish the visitors for some sloppy play around their penalty area.
Mohamed Salah added a third in the final 20 minutes after a superb counter. Takumi Minamino rounded off the victory with a fourth shortly after coming on.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was making only his third league start of the season in the clash. He started alongside Fabinho and Thiago in Liverpool’s midfield three.
And he went on to produce a stunning performance for the Reds. Plenty of Liverpool fans took to social media to suggest that his pressing was absolutely outstanding.
Some felt that he could have perhaps been better on the ball. But given the quality that Liverpool possess, his energy and intensity meant that he was so influential.
In fact, no Liverpool player won more tackles than the 28-year-old while he was on the pitch, according to Whoscored.
It was a remarkable showing from Oxlade-Chamberlain against his former club.
In fact, some supporters have hinted that they saw the best of the midfielder in the emphatic victory.
‘Phenomenal this game’: Liverpool fans laud Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after win vs Arsenal
Obviously, the challenge for Oxlade-Chamberlain – who earns £120,000-a-week – is to put a run of these sorts of performances together over the coming weeks.
His talent and ability has rarely been in doubt. But if he can enjoy some luck, then Liverpool may have another world-class player to call upon in the months ahead.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Liverpool fans made of Oxlade-Chamberlain’s performance…

The Ox has been superb tonight! Arguably his best performance since his knee injury picked up against Roma back in 2018.
