Some Liverpool supporters have hailed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s performance against Osasuna, as the Reds finished pre-season in style.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were excellent against the La Liga side on Monday night, easing to a fully-deserved 3-1 victory. It was Liverpool’s last pre-season friendly of the summer, with the real football getting underway on Saturday as the Reds open their Premier League campaign at Norwich City.
The Osasuna game saw a number of players shine, from Ibrahima Konate at centre-back to Kostas Tsimikas at left-back and Takumi Minamino and Roberto Firmino in attack.
Another who also impressed greatly was Oxlade-Chamberlain, who looked full of energy and almost scored a stunning long-range effort in the first half.
Klopp claimed that the midfielder was “on fire” after the game and it wasn’t only the Liverpool manager who recognised the influence he enjoyed.
Liverpool fans laud Oxlade-Chamberlain
Sky Sports named Oxlade-Chamberlain as their man of the match, while these Reds fans took to Twitter to heap praise on the midfielder following his “outstanding” display.
“Oxlade-Chamberlain showed signs of returning to form, tonight. Bags of energy, relentless pressing and always looking to attack. Just needs a bit of luck fitness-wise”
“Really dynamic performance this from the Oxlade“
“Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wants a starting spot against Norwich and does not care if you know it“
“Oxlade-Chamberlain really lively tonight. So much drive going forward and offers something different as a direct goal threat from midfield. Can make such a difference when he’s at it“
“Oxlade-Chamberlain my Man of the Match, outstanding. More performances like that this season along with Naby continuing his pre-season form and we’ll be sound. Leighton Clarkson (Xabi Alonso) looks a real player. Got an eye for a pass and plays it quickly. Boss watch that game“
“Oxlade Chamberlain is going to be very good this season!!! Can’t wait to see him balling at the PL with Liverpool“
