Wenger questions Oxlade-Chamberlain's Liverpool move

Opinion Oxlade Chamberlain shines for Liverpool as sizeable progression continues

Paul Merson says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is better suited to Liverpool's system, following his summer move from Arsenal.

The Liverpool squad were pictured beaming in festive Santa hats as they took a break from their preparations for Friday night's clash with Arsenal.

"The boys did well in different systems, which I really like a lot because that is the biggest improvement, but only because they now do the jobs in the moment, much more often". They have plenty of offensive players and looking at them recently, they have changed a lot their teams so it is hard to guess. And as well, you have to guess a little bit who will play [for Liverpool].

"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".

The England global was named in the Arsenal starting XI for the Premier League game back in August, despite it being widely acknowledged he might be about to join Liverpool. Wenger said at a pre-match news conference.

"Both of them are quick and strong and good".

Since a 6-0 thrashing of BATE Borisov in the Europa League, Arsenal have scored just three goals in their last four matches in all competitions.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility from the Taliban, who regularly stage attacks across the country and have seized control of several districts.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed the reasons behind Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's slow start to life at the Merseyside compared to teammate Mohamed Salah.

'It would be not fair to put the defeat at Liverpool, where the whole team had a bad performance, on one player, ' he said.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is unlikely to get a friendly reception on his return, but Wenger insisted he wants all former Arsenal players "to be respected" by the crowd.

Salah established himself as Liverpool's best player this season, scoring 19 goals with the club including 14 goals in the Premier League to be the league's top scorer. But I believe what is interesting in football is you have always a time a to make up for it.

"One thing you can be sure of is there will be goals".

Germany worldwide Shkodran Mustafi returned to first team training this week and is expected to feature on Friday night.
