Jurgen Klopp praises Liverpool's defensive improvement

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

Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to feature against the Gunners in tomorrow night's clash at the Emirates.

Whether it's been the calamitous displays from Dejan Lovren, Albert Moreno's penchant for an error or the lack of pace Ragnar Klavan possesses, it seems their backline always lets them down. They have plenty of offensive players, and looking at them recently, they have changed their teams a lot.

"A lot of the time [Olivier] Giroud played against us, even if he didn't play in the game before and after".

He looks irresistible at times when he plays so I think he's value to net first at a big 11/2.

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.

Now a player seemingly on the cusp of making a real impact with the Reds, Wenger has taken a dimmer view of his ex-player in his pre-match press conference.

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

Khan said there is also an intranasal spray version of the vaccine for those who don't want the needle. This flu season there have already been 401 flu-associated hospitalizations according to the state.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of four changes made by Klopp for the visit to Bournemouth as the German continued his recent policy of rotating his squad with a busy festive period of fixtures looming.

That remains one of the most complete performances of Liverpool's campaign, with their counter-attacking brilliance putting another top-four rival to the sword.

"On the other side, you analyse did you make mistakes or not?"

It will be interesting to see, then, what this new, improved, and perhaps more defensive version of the Liverpool side can do in their 19th league game of the season.

"I just say we are a team who likes to go forward and create chances and we do create chances".

"I think you've got to put him in the centre, in the midfield three and say "you are playing there" and leave him there for 10 games".
