Liverpool squad has depth for different competitions, says Juergen Klopp

Liverpool squad has depth for different competitions, says Juergen Klopp

The England worldwide joined the Anfield club on transfer deadline day for a reported initial fee of £35million.

Klopp said Oxlade-Chamberlain's switch to Merseyside from Arsenal made "complete sense" and that the England global had been roped in as a long-term prospect.

On this Tuesday, Leicester City vs Liverpool match is one of the biggest game in the third stage of the English Carabao Cup competition.

"But a new start is very often a kind of relief". That says a lot about you.

"I think I was warming up for the entire second half", says Fairclough, who eventually got on the pitch to claim a winner's medal with seven minutes of time remaining. "So far, I can't see that [he lacks self-belief]". The final was good when we played there, the semi-final a year ago with Southampton [came at] the wrongest possible moment but we couldn't change that.

"He knows he played all the games for Arsenal from the beginning and now he's coming here and sitting on the bench - it looks like it was not the best decision". The game changes in moments like this, you have the chance to do it by yourself or sometimes you are on the wrong side and that's how it is.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has leapt to the defence of summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suggesting he may have been placed under too much pressure when he first arrived at Arsenal.

"We played really good football in the first half and should have decided the game early", said Klopp.

"We will see how it is in January but, in this moment, I feel comfortable when I think about different opportunities to use the players and to bring the players in different games". "We had big chances, odd situations but it's football, it's at least a 90-minute game", said Klopp, whose side were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday. I'm sick of goals like this to be honest, you can not play football and do that. That's the plan. But he is now the flawless age and still is able to make big steps. David Fairclough, who had played in the first leg of the semi-final against Manchester City in 1981 before missing the final through injury, tells FFT that the reasons for the club's success in the competition were straightforward.
