Arsenal wasted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's 'unbelievable' goalscoring potential, says Jurgen Klopp

Arsene Wenger has suggested Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should have stayed at Arsenal to fight for his place rather than move to Liverpool.

Arsenal won't be able to call on their super sub Olivier Giroud on Friday night after he suffered a hamstring injury in midweek, and Aaron Ramsey is out with the same issue. They are involved in a lot of moments and decisive passes. They have plenty of offensive players, and looking at them recently, they have changed their teams a lot.

"What do you want to be, a big player and not have to fight?"

Predicting a Liverpool starting XI this season under tinkerman Jurgen Klopp is only marginally more hard than forecasting the outcome of a social function involving the England cricket team. Wenger said at a pre-match news conference.

"Going forward they are huge, but defensively they aren't as strong".

Arsenal v Liverpool is always a game for the neutral to look forward to and it's the Reds who have got the better of the Gunners in recent times, winning the last three matches between the two sides.

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.

He said: "It's all so different, he has become more and more a Liverpool player".

"We have to analyse that well, and as well you have to guess a little bit who will play".

Arsenal are one point behind fourth place Liverpool, and Wenger acknowledged that the games between the top six could be more important than ever this season in determining who will finish in the Champions League spots. "You can not go home and say everything was flawless when you lose like we did". But this game is also a chance to set things right for the Gunners after that Anfield humiliation. But I believe what is interesting in football is you have always a time a to make up for it.

That is a very fearless thing to say as it is clear that our strikers have lost their scoring boots at the moment, but I guess our luck in front of goal must change at some point. "So let's focus on what is in front of us and turn up on Friday with a totally, completely different performance".
