Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to make first Liverpool start against Leicester tomorrow

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to make first Liverpool start against Leicester tomorrow

A Champions League qualifying win over Hoffenheim across two legs, a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace and a 4-0 dismantling of Arsenal gave rise to early optimism, but the team have not won any of their last three games in all competitions.

Liverpool will start their third hard goalkeeper of the season for the Carabao Cup trip to Leicester City after manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed Danny Ward will begin the third round tie at the King Power Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp tried to address his defensive woes by trying to lure Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool but Southampton refused to sell. "The third goalkeeper in one season without an injury - we can't do it!"

"Of course, that's the beauty of football and especially playing for a top club like this - you're playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday, and if you have a bad afternoon or a bad night then you've got time to put it right", he said.

The Wales global was influential in Huddersfield's promotion campaign having spent last season on loan but the closest he has got to any action so far this term was watching the 4-0 win over Arsenal from the bench in his only selection in a match-day squad.

If a new player comes he is in for the season.

Klopp's success over seven years at Borussia Dortmund made him one of Europe's most sought-after managers, but with Liverpool struggling defensively, former Newcastle United captain Shearer said he was no better than his predecessor. "It is hard to train because of the games but it is a long-term project".

Oxlade-Chamberlain made six starts this season for the Gunners and England but has been used sparingly by Klopp as he was schooled in how the German wants him to work.

"He takes the situation like it is, he knows he played all the games for Arsenal from the beginning". It's really good that he's here.

Klopp also revealed that Joe Gomez will start at centre back if Dejan Lovren is unavailable.

Another peripheral first-team player in contention to feature for Liverpool is Jon Flanagan.

The England worldwide has played only 57 minutes in three substitute appearances since his £35million deadline-day move from Arsenal.
