Oxlade-Chamberlain eager to impress at every opportunity

LiverpoolFC.TV - 7 hours 42 min ago

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is keen to take full advantage of every opportunity he gets to impress for Liverpool after scoring his first goal for the club against Maribor.

The No.21 came off the bench with just over half an hour to go in Slovenia on Tuesday night and netted the sixth goal of the Reds’ comprehensive 7-0 victory - the biggest European away success in their history.

Jürgen Klopp praised Oxlade-Chamberlain’s impact after he was introduced as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with Manchester United at the weekend, and the England international was pleased to make another positive impression at Ljudski vrt.

“It’s a competitive team that I’ve come in to. We’re in an important part of the season where we want to get off to a good start and we’ve got a few results that haven’t gone our way,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told BT Sport.

“Everyone’s fighting for their place and I’m just ready for when I get the opportunity, like tonight. I need to keep developing and learning a new style of play here and get used to that and then whenever I get my opportunities, try to do as well as I can.”

Maribor 0-7 LFC in 90 seconds

On the key to a dominant victory that put Liverpool top of Champions League Group E, Oxlade-Chamberlain explained that his teammates had met Klopp’s demand to approach the game with the right attitude.

“I think we started with the right intensity. The manager said when we come to these places it’ll be a tough game, we can’t be complacent, we need to give them 100 per cent effort and I think the boys did that right from the off,” he continued.

“Even at half-time he was still pushing for us to do better and react again because we thought they’d come out and give it a good go, so the boys reacted really well again after half-time and ultimately we got everything we deserved. 

“More to the point we were more clinical today, putting away all our chances, or near enough all of them.

“Every week it feels like we’ve got a lot of goals in us and it’s just not clicking right at the final moment.

“I think we create a lot of opportunities and I hear people saying the stats are always Liverpool have 20 shots a game, so if we keep doing those things - that’s the important thing, that we keep creating chances and keep trying and hopefully it’ll come off for us and tonight they did.”

Jürgen Klopp on Reds' seven-goal Maribor win: 'It was better than good!'

Jürgen Klopp on Reds' seven-goal Maribor win: 'It was better than good!'

LiverpoolFC.TV - 8 hours 11 min ago

Jürgen Klopp praised the manner in which Liverpool carried out their tactical instructions as they recorded a historic 7-0 victory over Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Reds significantly bolstered their hopes of progress in Group E with a commanding triumph in Slovenia – their biggest ever away win in European competition.

Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah (2) all struck to give the visitors a four-goal lead by the half-time interval.

Firmino nodded in a fifth after the break before substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain claimed his first for the club with a close-range finish.

Trent Alexander-Arnold wrapped up the scoring at the death – and afterwards, Klopp spoke of his satisfaction at the manner in which Liverpool produced such a clinical display.

Read on for a summary of his post-match press conference at the Ljudski Vrt stadium…

On his thoughts on the performance…

Good, or even better [than that]. From the first second it was exactly what we wanted to do. We wanted to show the best counter-pressing of the last few weeks because I really thought that protecting our offensive movements, patterns and all that stuff were already really good against United but we could have done even better in counter-pressing. Tonight we did much better and against a football-playing side like Maribor, it made a lot of sense. We scored the first goal from a pressing situation and a few other goals were after a counter-pressing situation, so it helped a lot. Then, how we finished these situations was also good. A lot this season already [we have been] alone in the box to make a cross or a pass, but were not relaxed enough to play the right pass. Tonight it was different. Always when we let them play, they played immediately and were around our 18-yard box and that only showed how good they could be. But we never gave up in this game, especially in the second half. It was good - all-round a really, really good performance otherwise you cannot win 7-0 - so we are really happy about that.

On Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opening his Reds account…

It helps a lot - he could have scored two. It was nice from Daniel [Sturridge], how he made this goal, it was really cool and I liked it. The performance was very active, [he] had crosses, was involved not immediately - obviously we forgot a fresh player was on the right wing so we didn’t involve him from the beginning - when they recognised that Ox was now there he was really involved and it was good.

On setting a new club record…

I was told immediately after the game, I had no idea actually. We spoke a few times about how the wonderful history of this club can sometimes feel like a backpack so it's nice to write history, and it will probably be difficult to beat that. It’s quite rare that you win 7-0 but it shows again we did unbelievably well tonight. I think Maribor was quite confident before the game because of different reasons [and] because they are a very good team. We could read the newspaper today here because my assistant can read the language, and I asked him, 'What do they write?' They were quite confident because an English team had never won in Maribor so that's obviously another thing that we did for the first time. I think, really, the boys deserved that because they really kept on going. It’s just good to work together but the only problem is that you always have to explain why you didn’t win. It's probably not the most difficult thing to explain, especially after our games because you see we created the chances but we did not use them. That's not enough for you, how you know, and then you put the finger on all the other problems we sometimes had. So, it was a challenge and it will be a challenge to stay confident in this league. We try to use the result now, but the next game is against Tottenham so it’s pretty likely it will not be a similar result. But no problem, we have four or five days to recover and prepare for the game, so that’s good and we are already looking forward to it.

Liverpool celebrate a record-breaking night in Maribor

LiverpoolFC.TV - 8 hours 35 min ago

Liverpool set a new club record on Tuesday night as they recorded their biggest away win in Europe against Maribor.

The 7-0 scoreline beat the previous best of 5-0 - a margin the Reds have achieved three times previously on their travels in the continent.

Their first record away victory in Europe was 1964 against Reykjavik. They equalled that in 1976 away to Crusaders, and did it again in 2001 against the Finnish side FC Haka.

The Reds have also equalled the biggest win away from home in Champions League history. Marseille achieved it in November 2010 with a 7-0 win away to MSK Zilina and Shakhtar Donetsk also won by the same scoreline away to BATE in October 2014.

A dominant performance earned Liverpool their first win in Champions League Group E with a record-breaking 7-0 victory over Maribor on Tuesday.

Report: Dominant Reds record historic seven-goal success in Maribor

Report: Dominant Reds record historic seven-goal success in Maribor

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 17/10/2017 - 23:36

Liverpool collected a first win of the Champions League group stages with an emphatic 7-0 victory over Maribor in Slovenia on Tuesday night – setting a club record in the process.

The Reds enhanced their chances of making the next phase of the competition in style as they followed up draws against Sevilla and Spartak Moscow with a commanding triumph at the Ljudski Vrt stadium.

Roberto Firmino tapped Jürgen Klopp’s side into a fourth-minute lead before Philippe Coutinho’s well executed volley and Mohamed Salah’s close-range finish added to the scoreline.

Salah grabbed a second before the break prior to Firmino meeting Coutinho’s free-kick from the left with a flick header following the restart for the fifth.

The scoring was completed when substitutes Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain combined to enable the former to net his first Liverpool goal and Trent Alexander-Arnold thumped into a seventh.

The seven-goal margin of victory makes it the Reds’ biggest ever away victory in European competition; however, of more concern to Klopp and his players will be the fact the success has significantly bolstered their prospects in Group E.

The key points…

  • Firmino, Coutinho and Salah all strike inside the opening 20 minutes
  • Salah taps in Liverpool’s fourth just before half-time
  • Firmino glanced in fifth on 54 minutes
  • Oxlade-Chamberlain grabs first Reds goal before Alexander-Arnold wraps up scoring
  • Spartak Moscow defeat Sevilla 5-1 in group’s other fixture
  • Liverpool now top of Group E after three games

The team news…

Jürgen Klopp made three changes to his starting line-up from the side deployed against Manchester United on Saturday, with Loris Karius, Alexander-Arnold and James Milner coming into the XI in place of Simon Mignolet, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson – all of whom were on the bench.

The first half…

Liverpool got the game underway in Slovenia knowing a win could ultimately prove vital to their hopes of reaching the next stage of the Champions League, following draws with Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.

A good start, therefore, was the order of the day – and it was exactly what the Reds delivered after just four minutes at the Ljudski Vrt stadium.

Salah’s industry and tenacity down the right took him into space inside the area, and he rolled the ball across goal to allow Firmino the easiest of finishes from four yards out.

If the opener was one of simplicity, the second – which followed just nine minutes later – was a much more complex manoeuvre.

Firmino turned into space in the centre of the park and switched play out wide to Salah, who in turn fed it down the line into the path of Milner’s maraud forward. The captain for the night hooked the ball back towards the edge of the area, where Coutinho arrived to sweep a volley into the back of the net.

And despite their storming start, there was to be no let-up in Liverpool’s chance creation as Firmino flicked one agonisingly wide of the post before Alberto Moreno crashed a drive into the side netting.

But a third soon arrived when Firmino slipped Salah into space inside the area, and he finished clinically beyond Jasmin Handanovic from close range with just 19 minutes elapsed.

And by the interval, the Reds had registered a fourth. Coutinho’s magnificent pass to find Moreno’s burst into the left chancel of the area allowed the Spaniard to drill into the middle, where Salah tapped in just ahead of Firmino.

It was the first time in the club’s history they’d ever scored four goals away from home before half-time in Europe – and the first time since December 2006 they’d achieved it in any competition since doing so at Wigan Athletic.

The second half…

Liverpool picked up where they’d left off as the second half got underway – and they didn’t have to wait too long for number five.

Nine minutes, in fact, as Firmino met a Coutinho free-kick from the left with a glancing header across goal and into the far corner.

Oxlade-Chamberlain entered the action shortly after, replacing Salah, before Daniel Sturridge took the place of Firmino and Dominic Solanke that of Georginio Wijnaldum.

Oxlade-Chamberlain went close to opening his Reds account on 76 minutes, but had a low whack blocked at the near post by Handanovic prior to Coutinho having a nudge cleared off the line by a home defender.

However, a debut strike did duly arrive for the No.21 when Sturridge punished a poor clearance by sliding Oxlade-Chamberlain through, and he steered into the net.

And on a magnificent night’s work for Klopp’s charges, there was still time for Alexander-Arnold to thump in a seventh via a deflection to put the seal on a significant evening for the Reds in Slovenia.

The stats…
