The England worldwide was named in the Arsenal starting XI for the Premier League game back in August, despite it being widely acknowledged he might be about to join Liverpool.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has promised Liverpool FC fans that there is plenty more to come from him as he prepares for an emotional return to Arsenal.

Since losing 4-1 to Tottenham at Wembley in October, though, they have conceded only four goals in nine Premier League games.

And he rapped: "The biggest improvement for Oxlade-Chamberlain is being involved in goalscoring situations".

"We looked at things in training and we knew that as a whole team it was a challenge to address". It's not like we said "from now on we do it differently". All the players, not only the defenders. "The changes we made were not major corrections but it was clear we needed more stability in defence so in that kind of way it changed a little". "We are a team with very offensive orientation but that doesn't mean you have to give space away".

Ukraine again arrests Mikheil Saakashvili, ex-president of Georgia
Former president of Georgia says he has gone on hunger strike following his re-arrest in Ukraine's capital. After he was freed, he urged the crowd to impeach Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko, a former ally.

The 24-year-old is now preparing for the possibility of coming up against his former club for the first time since his move, as Liverpool FC prepare to take on Arsenal at The Emirates on Friday night.

He said: "Against us most of the time Giroud played from the beginning so that shows the style Arsenal choose against us". Giroud can't play, but they have a lot of good, good footballers on the pitch. "Hopefully he stays fit, that's the most important thing", Klopp told the club's website (www.liverpoolfc.com).

Daniel Sturridge (illness and hamstring) and Joel Matip (adductor) remain doubts for Liverpool, while Alberto Moreno (ankle) is still out.

"The boys did well in different systems, which I really like a lot because that is the biggest improvement, but only because they now do the jobs in the moment, much more often".

"So thank God, I, or we, here make the decisions and nobody else".
