How Liverpool will Line up with $52million Signing

Jurgen Klopp DortmundLiverpool completed the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from the Gunners on deadline day and it will be intriguing to see where he will line up for Klopp.

The Merseysiders paid a huge fee (via Guardian) of 40 million pounds ($52million) to lure the England international and after paying that sum, he should really be starting.

Alex snubbed Chelsea to move to Anfield because he wants to play in the central midfield and not in the wing-back position (via BBC).

As far as Liverpool’s midfield is concerned, Klopp has mainly preferred the likes of Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum in his 4-3-3 starting XI this season. The German boss has also got midfielders like Milner, Grujic and Lallana (currently injured) in the squad.

Moreover, if Coutinho does not leave today then he must be brought back into the starting XI sooner rather than later. In such a scenario, Jurgen should face a serious selection dilemma.

Ox mainly warmed the bench for the Gunners last season and surely he did not reject lucrative offers to warm the bench at Liverpool as well. So, we can expect him to start.

The 24-year-old midfielder is a pacy star and has proved to be effective in the attacking third so we believe, he will be the most advanced of the three midfielders.

Here is how Liverpool will line up with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

    Worries me that Henderson or Milner can be seen as our two defensive midfield options and, with Mane, Firmino and Salah looking so good up front I’m astonished we didn’t get £140m for Coutinho when you remember he’ll more than likely be ‘going through the motions’ looking as sad as he can manage because he didn’t get the move he wanted. Nah, we could have replaced him with somebody for £40m and had a little nest egg in the bank for van Dijk. On that front it annoys me we didn’t go for Howedes who would have been a more than capable alternative signing.
