Arsene Wenger Goes Long Ball Against Liverpool - Jurgen Klopp

Arsene Wenger Goes Long Ball Against Liverpool - Jurgen Klopp

That 4-0 drubbing proved to be Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's last appearance for Arsenal before leaving for Liverpool and although the England global attracted widespread criticism for his display on that day, Wenger refused to point the finger at his former player. People didn't hesitate to say: "That's why we need a new left-back". "In a big club, you have big competition with some good players".

"Look, he had one year to go".

"Arsenal still make chances, they are just not putting the ball in the back of the net, and Liverpool, of course, are risky on the counter". He chose to go.

"I think "wow". Thankfully we make the decisions and nobody else". That's part of it.

"I don't think it's so much about a development thing, I think it's about a player having the right fit of a team".

"Liverpool are very good going forward, so you see a very good overall defensive performance", he told reporters on Thursday. It does not work like that. All the players, not only the defenders.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who joined The Reds on transfer deadline day from Arsenal, is believed to have a slow start to his career with Liverpool, as he had little impact in his 11 games with the club.

Salah has been on fire in the last few months and finds himself sitting at the summit of the Premier League top scorers chart with an impressive 14, averaging one every 97 minutes, the best of anyone who has netted more than five times in the top flight.

"We trust the full squad, that's the first and maybe most important thing", Klopp said. "Who is the team who created the most chances in the League?"

Arsenal versus Liverpool is always a big fixture in the English footballing calendar, but these comments are sure to add to the rivalry between the two, particularly if Chamberlain should be given a starting berth. Sadio Mane may be the most out-of-form of the quartet but his omission against Bournemouth at least means he is all but guaranteed to start on a ground where he scored on his Liverpool debut last season. "You can not go home and say everything was ideal when you lose like we did".

"It is unbelievable but he was not asked for this too much in the past".
