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

Liverpool's Trent Alexander Arnold celebrates as Alex Oxlade Chamberlain scores the third goal during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final 1st Leg match between Liverpool FC and Manchester City FC Watch: Oxlade-Chamberlain Hits An Absolute Screamer To Send Anfield Into Raptures

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored an excellent goal in Liverpool's Champions League semi-final win over Manchester City this week, the biggest goal of his career.

"Alex I would say has probably done slightly better out of the two".

Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping his good form at Liverpool will be enough to book a ticket on the plane to Russian Federation this summer as part of England's World Cup squad. A pattern emerged of one good game followed by three or four hugely frustrating ones, with the Ox one of several Arsenal players particularly guilty of losing possession in indefensible areas.

"I think they were both treading water at Arsenal, it's as simple as that", Redknapp said on Sky Sports.

"At times it has gone against me because I can be hard on myself and beat myself up a bit", he said.

"He [the referee] gave me a booking, but I was a bit disappointed because I hadn't conceded many fouls during the game".

Jurgen Klopp's team have a solid lead in their Champions League quarter-final tie, which was gained in a first-half marked by goals from Mohamed Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane.

The midfielder claimed that Liverpool's clean-sheet was nearly as important as their goals and speaking to RTÉ Sport he said: "The nil is always massive, it gives us a great chance to get there and get a goal and that sets us up to see it home". "I've been working on that, on trying to do it more often".

"If you are the away team and the crowd gets going like that [inside Anfield], it is awful", Oxlade-Chamberlain insisted.

"It was a great start for us - going 3-0 up before half-time set us up brilliantly", the England worldwide told BT Sport. "I remember when Chelsea won it they had a lot of games where they didn't dominate possession".

Before Tuesday's return leg at the Etihad there is the small matter of a Merseyside derby at Everton.

"It's testament to him: he's getting games, he knows what he's meant to be doing, he's getting in the team, he's got a game plan and he's carrying it out perfectly".

He added: "We enjoy this tonight and then we start again tomorrow. In this competition we're going to play quality sides and we're going to have to defend well at times and that was what we showed in the second half".
