Liverpool praises Oxlade-Chamberlain after 4-1 win over Genk

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was reserved in his praise for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the midfielder marked his return to the Champions League after an 18-month absence with two goals. The England midfielder, who missed virtually all of last season with a serious knee injury, scored the first two in a 4-1 win against Genk – the second a sublime strike off the underside of the crossbar with the outside of his foot – but Klopp felt both the player and the team could have done better. “It was absolutely a great moment for him, but I would say with Ox his performance was exactly the same as the performance of the team – the goals were great but all the rest could have been better,” said Klopp.
