The midfielder claimed that Liverpool's clean-sheet was almost 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 never played in anything like that and having an atmosphere like that was incredible".

He was from the first day ready for hard work, and because of these new things he experienced, a different style of football, that gives you the opportunity to do things in a new way, and that obviously helped.

The former Arsenal man received the ball 30 yards out from the goal before driving at goal and unleashing a thunderous shot.

Klopp doesn't think it's just the positional change that has benefited his £35million summer signing.

@JoeCasss, "Absolutely disgusting. Thank you Arsenal".

City's coach was pelted with bottles before the encounter, as Reds fans greeted the champions-elect with a wall of noise and red smoke.

In January, Oxlade-Chamberlain doubted whether he would play at this summer's World Cup for England.

Asked about Oxlade's improvement since joining the club, Klopp was quoted by The Metro saying, 'That's all because of his potential, because of his quality.

His unrelenting energy and attacking intricacy will be useful in unlocking Panama and Tunisia while he proved on Wednesday night that he has struck fear into Vincent Kompany and his Belgian colleague De Bruyne.

"He's been transformed under Klopp, to the player he should have been at Arsenal", said Morgan on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday night.

Liverpool must do it all over again in Manchester next Tuesday but if City pour forward too much too early, and leave gaps in defence, Liverpool know they can score again and settle the tie.

That's according to former Premier League star Jamie Redknapp who says the duo are reaping the rewards having quit north London.

"We cannot make him quicker, and we don't have to, we cannot really work on his technical ability because he is on the highest level already and is now using them in the right moment, the right spaces, in the right situations, making the best decisions you can make". They were working together for six years or whatever and he never blamed Arsene Wenger for not improving enough or whatever, but sometimes it's only about changing the circumstances, that's it. Where, at Arsenal, one good game may have been followed by three directionless performances, that trend needs to be reversed over the coming seasons.
