Liverpool: Fans say Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain must start in crucial Man City clash

Liverpool: Fans say Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain must start in crucial Man City clash

Liverpool’s last-gasp winner against Aston Villa put them firmly in the Premier League driving seat going into Sunday’s crunch match against Man City at Anfield. Pep Guardiola’s side haven’t won there since 2003 but they need a win to claw back their 6-point deficit.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain started in both the Champions League game against Genk and the Carabao Cup game against Arsenal recently and scored three goals all from outside the box. He came on against Aston Villa with 25 minutes to go, 1-0 down, and added more urgency to their attack their too, which was noted by fansite This is Anfield who said: “It was really only after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came on that the midfield became a true part of the attack.” He’s certainly putting his name in the picture for a start in what could be the biggest game of the season.

Liverpool fans agree too. They took to Twitter after Sadio Mane’s 94th-minute goal to vent just how important it is that Oxlade-Chamberlain starts next weekend. He scored from outside the box in the same fixture during the 2017/18 season, and fans think he has the ability to win the game for them again.
