Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has inevitably become one of the centre-pieces of discussion ahead of Liverpool’ trip to the Emirates Stadium on Friday night. The powerful yet creative England international will be returning to Arsenal for the first time since trading north London for Merseyside during the final days of the summer transfer window.
Former stars always have a knack of haunting their ex-employers, especially when greeted with a hostile reception, but Oxlade-Chamberlain certainly hasn’t convinced everybody since joining the Anfield ranks and Jurgen Klopp has been incredibly proactive in rotating his squad in recent weeks.
With that in mind, we recently asked Liverpool supporters whether the 5 foot 11 midfielder should start against the Gunners and our poll revealed that although Reds fans are relatively divided on the issue, a healthy 64% want to see him in Klopp’s XI tonight.
