The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a video from their club’s official Twitter account of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane taking part in the latest #GoalsRecreated series. Chamberlain had to recreate the goal scored by Steven Gerrard in the Champions League in 2009 and Liverpool fans are loving it.
“What a finish. On the half-volley. Stevie G.” @Alex_OxChambo, with help from Mane and Firmino, attempts to recreate a Steven Gerrard @ChampionsLeague classic with @btsport. #GoalsRecreated pic.twitter.com/79U6U6K4Wg

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks like a new player and a new person since he swapped London for Liverpool in the summer. The winger, turned central-midfielder left the Emirates to pursue a career in the middle of the park after being deployed predominantly at wing-back under Wenger. The move, although a risky one, has turned out to be a good one for Chamberlain as he’s flourished under the Gengenpress style on show under Klopp at Anfield.
Chamberlain has been one of a number of players whose achievements have been well documented this season. After initially receiving criticism for his move and taking a few weeks to adapt to his new life on Merseyside, the England man now looks to be a shoe-in to be on the plane to Russia in the summer as part of Gareth Southgate’s England squad, and if he can recreate more Steven Gerrard goals in matches between now and the end of the season it’ll just further improve his stock with England fans before the World Cup in June.

I must say, Ox is a shrewd buy. He has huge potential and the right attitude. He is going to be an Anfield hit. #LFC

Need some of that in games, our midfielders arriving into the box. Gerrard was brilliant at it.
