Liverpool fans want Oxlade-Chamberlain to start against Man United

In the standout fixture of the Premier League weekend, Liverpool play host to Manchester United at Anfield on Saturday, and Reds fans want Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to start in Sadio Mane’s absence despite the fact he has endured a tough time following his summer move from Arsenal.

The 24-year-old would have hoped to have been a regular starter under Jurgen Klopp, but he has had to make do with a place on the substitutes’ bench in both the Premier League and Champions League so far.

Following a disappointing performance when he did start against Leicester in the EFL Cup, and a below-par showing for England during the international break, he could finally get his top flight opportunity against the Red Devils with Mane out for six weeks after picking up a hamstring injury playing for Senegal.

Liverpool supporters have been having their say on the Ox via social media, and while some said they “really hope he starts”, others say it is ‘time for him to step up’.
