Liverpool host Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter want midfielder Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain promoted to the starting XI.
The Reds are looking to defend their Champions League crown this season, but kicked off the group stages with a 2-0 defeat away to Napoli.
They will be aiming to get back on track in their next group fixture against Salzburg and they do remain one of the favourites for the European top club prize.
Jurgen Klopp’s team have a 100 per cent win record from their opening seven Premier League games this season and are particularly formidable at Anfield.
Salzburg are an exciting attacking side that may look to have a go at Liverpool and they beat Genk 6-2 in their opening group match of the Champions League.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media believe that Oxlade-Chamberlain should come into the team.
The Englishman is yet to score or assists in his eight appearances across all competitions so far this season, but is still working his way back to his best after missing most of the last campaign through injury.
Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are the preferred combination in the centre of the park, but there are options in the squad to rotate the midfield.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, 26, needs to try rediscover his form and some feel Salzburg are the ideal opponents to throw him in.
Here are some Liverpool fans on Oxlade-Chamberlain:
I’d like us to start with Ox and Keita in midfield alongside Fab against Salzburg. Think we need some pace in the midfield that we don’t currently have. Ox played such a big role in 2017/18 and linked our mid with the front 3, but you need pace to do that.

For Salzburg think perfect game to play Ox with Gini and Fabinho. No offence to Salzburg but they will bottle anfield. Will Ox chance to play in a match he could score in.

Don’t want to underestimate Salzburg though. Maybe bring in Ox for Hendo but I’d definitely have either Gini or Hendo in that midfield.

Think we should start Keita and Ox against Salzburg.

Actually happy about that we need to rotate the squad and give some of the regulars a rest. Hope Origi and the Ox also start tmr
