Oxlade-Chamberlain Calls Anfield Atmosphere the Best He's Ever Played In

"It was extraordinary, I've never played in anything like that and an atmosphere like that was incredible".

And Oxlade-Chamberlain, who joined Liverpool from Arsenal in August, believes the result came about as a result of both he and his team-mates on-field efforts and the supporter's off-field antics.

He claims Oxlade-Chamberlain in particular has been impressive since quitting the Emirates.

When asked about the 24-year-old, Klopp delivered a brilliant answer on why Oxlade-Chamberlain has found a new lease of life after six years at Arsenal and a hard start at Liverpool.

Towards the end of his last season with Arsenal, the England global struggled to find his best form and Arsene Wenger was blamed for the player's poor performances.

The Reds' No.21 has gone from strength to strength in recent months and, whilst being deemed inconsistent by some, impressed once again during the midweek 3-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City.

The truth is that, as with so much else at Arsenal, Oxlade-Chamberlain's failure to reach his potential is a source of much confusion and wistfulness.

The Reds' fans thanked Arsene Wenger-led Arsenal for selling the Englishman to Liverpool.

Being in a different place, if you're aware of your different problems....he knew he had to change something.

"I think they were both treading water at Arsenal, it's as simple as that", Redknapp said on Sky Sports. "I have to improve to get to where I want to get and to be as good as I hope to be so I keep working on it".

"He never blamed Arsene Wenger for not improving enough or whatever".

"He was not coming here and saying 'come on, make the best of me, use me in the best way".

No English footballer this year has turned his season and perhaps reputation around quicker than this midfielder; someone who arrived at Liverpool on the final day of the transfer window in August with many critics. That gives you the opportunity to do things you're not used to, and that's what helped him.

Things got worse for City when Sadio Mane made it 3-0 to the Anfield outfit.

'He's an outstanding talent still, still a lot of things to improve, no problem with that'.

"That's all good [but] all players can improve and that's where he can improve of course as well".
