Chelsea fans glad they didn’t sign Oxlade-Chamberlain after shocker for Liverpool

Former Chelsea target Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made his first Liverpool start in their 2-0 defeat against Leicester City in the third round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night, and Blues fans are glad they didn’t sign him following a disappointing performance.

The 24-year-old rejected a move to the Blues after the Premier League holders had agreed a fee with Arsenal in favour of joining Jurgen Klopp’s men in a £35m deal on transfer deadline day, and he was named in the starting line-up on the right wing having been a substitute for the matches against Manchester City, Sevilla and Burnley.

However, it was a night to forget for the England international as a number of misplaced passes and poor set-pieces summed up a frustrating night for him and his club.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Oxlade-Chamberlain’s performance via social media, and while some say they “dodged a bullet” by not signing him, others feel it was a “lucky escape”.
