Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain states his prediction for Arsenal v Liverpool FC
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insists that he is determined to help Liverpool FC beat Arsenal on Friday
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has insisted that he is determined to help Liverpool FC try and claim the three points when they take on his former club Arsenal in the Premier League on Friday night.
The England midfielder is preparing to return to his former club for the first time since completing his big-money transfer to Liverpool FC from Arsenal on deadline day back in August.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has been gradually breaking into the first team at Anfield since his move and he has scored one goal and made two assists in 15 Premier League games for Jurgen Klopp’s men so far this term.
However, the 24-year-old has only started five of those games and will be hoping to hold down a more regular spot in the first team moving forwards.
Arsenal are now preparing to welcome Klopp’s side to The Emirates on Friday night as the Gunners look to try and gain revenge for their 4-0 thrashing by Liverpool FC back in August.
And although Oxlade-Chamberlain admits that the occasion will be an “emotional” one for him, he is determined to try and help the Reds claim all three points.
The midfielder is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “It will be a special occasion for me, full of emotion I’m sure.
“We’re in good form and we’ll be going there full of confidence and looking for three points.
“I hope we can put together a good performance, fight all the way through the game and come out with the right result.”
Liverpool FC are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table and one point ahead of Arsenal.
