Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is not concerned about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s slow start to life as a Liverpool player.

The 24-year-old midfielder signed for the Reds from Arsenal on transfer deadline day after Arsene Wenger agreed to let the England international leave the club and join a Premier League rival.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has only started one game so far for Liverpool this season and he did not produce the best performance as the Reds slumped to a 2-0 loss to Leicester City in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

The midfielder will be hoping to hold down a more regular spot in the first team in the coming weeks and months.

And Liverpool boss Klopp insists that he is not concerned about Oxlade-Chamberlain’s relatively quiet start to life at Anfield.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference at Melwood on Thursday, Klopp said: “That is the world of football. I can imagine.

“Ox had a few really good situations and a few unlucky situations. He has a little problem with a calf.

“It’s not an injury but we have to learn to manage it. He didn’t make the best game of football in his life but that is the world of football. I am not in doubt about him.”

Liverpool are currently preparing for another clash against Leicester – this time in the Premier League – on Saturday afternoon.

It remains to be seen whether Oxlade-Chamberlain will start for the Reds against the Foxes this time around.

Liverpool will then return to Champions League action next week with a trip to Spartak Moscow in their next group game.
