What Liverpool fans were saying about Oxlade-Chamberlain during Newcastle win

Liverpool cruised to a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United on Saturday.

After a frustrating start to the match, Liverpool eventually found a way through, who else, Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian netted his 32nd goal of the season after a fine run by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and he’s now scored more goals than Luis Suarez ever did in his finest season at Anfield.

What a signing he’s proven to be.

“Salah strikes again. His 24th @premierleague goal. What a signing he’s been,” Gary Lineker wrote on Twitter.

And you really can’t argue with him. Salah is putting together a fine case to be named the Premier League’s Player of the Year.

Sadio Mane scored the second as Jurgen Klopp’s side won their fourth match in a row.

The German will be mightily pleased with how his team are playing right now, and that includes Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The England international came off for James Milner with 10 minutes remaining but not before producing an impressive performance at the heart of midfield – he was named as the Man of the Match.

His surging run before teeing up Salah to score showcased everything that he’s about, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger must regret not giving Oxlade-Chamberlain an opportunity in the middle.


Here’s what Liverpool fans were saying about the 24-year-old’s performance.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has fitted in nicely following his summer move to Liverpool, playing in a central role that he’s always craved.

He recently spoke about how much he enjoys playing behind that front three of Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino.

“It’s frightening,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told Liverpool’s official website. “There won’t be too many trios in Europe that can muster up those sorts of numbers.

“They’ve been brilliant for us in front of goal, but defensively as well they know their jobs, they work really hard and they’re really good, honest lads and good to be around.

“They’re the type of lads that you really want to see succeed and do well, and you want to do everything you can to help them to achieve their goals and ultimately to help the team achieve all of our goals.”

With Naby Keita set to join him in the summer, Klopp is building quite an exciting midfield.
