Liverpool’s 4-1 win away at Genk in the Champions League on Wednesday night was far from perfect according to Jurgen Klopp, but they got the job done. Indeed, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the Reds’ first two goals on the second and 57th minute to push Genk out of sight, and his performance was a major boost for the busy months ahead.
He was rated 8.93/10 by Who Scored for his performance and during his 74 minutes on the pitch he also made a key pass and two successful dribbles to open up the Genk defence. He’s only managed to make just one start this season and three subs appearances, so Klopp will be pleased that Oxlade-Chamberlain is finally getting back to the form he’s capable of.
These Reds fans know how important the 26-year-old could be in winning their first-ever Premier League trophy, and they made their love for him known on Twitter. The club’s official account posted a video the player made thanking the fans and expressing his delight at the team’s second half and over 200 fans replied to the message.
Is right, @Alex_OxChambo 🙌
