Jurgen Klopp: There was too much pressure on Oxlade-Chamberlain early on

Premier League legend Alan Shearer attends a coaching demonstration and tournament for local youngsters led by locally trained Premier Skills coaches

All of that is set to change, as the start of Liverpool's League Cup campaign today against Leicester City will likely give the utility man his first start under Klopp. "You are in a situation in your old club - I don't say it now for Alex especially but in general it's like this - you are in a specific position and you accept it at some point and then it's hard to make the next step".

The German made eight changes from Saturday, although Philippe Coutinho retained his place in a starting XI that included Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the first time. So far I can see that.

Dominic Solanke, Daniel Sturridge, Ben Woodburn and James Milner are others who could all start or are at least expected to make the 18-man squad.

"He knows he played all the games for Arsenal from the beginning and now he's coming here and sitting on the bench - it looks like it was not the best decision".

"We want to use him and to prepare him also". The final was good when we played there, the semi-final previous year with Southampton [came at] the wrongest possible moment but we couldn't change that.

Despite the mixed feelings many on Merseyside have had towards the polarizing youngster, Liverpool fans will still be hoping that their Klopp's famed man management skills and teaching ability on the training pitch will finally be able to bring the full potential the English global has only shown in flashing since bursting into the top flight as a teenager. We have a lot of players who are actually in good shape but haven't had match starts so far.

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.

Klopp said: "I'm not sure if there is pressure on us".

Kieran Trippier did well to bring the ball down on the wing and cross to Alli, who could not miss in the centre of the box. "I have pressure, but it can not be bigger than the pressure I put on myself".

"So, hide them as long as it makes sense and send them out as soon as possible".

Liverpool duo Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are continuing to make positive steps in their ongoing recoveries from long-term injuries according to Jürgen Klopp. I thought in the last game, he played like a Liverpool player - highest intensity, was involved, was not fixed in a position.

"I'm really happy to have him here".
