Paul Merson: Chamberlain set for immediate disappointment at Liverpool

Paul Merson: Chamberlain set for immediate disappointment at Liverpool

Oxlade-Chamberlain opted against extending his contract at The Emirates and signed a long-term deal with Liverpool as he became Jurgen Klopp's latest signing at Anfield. But Henry, speaking on Sky Sports, was not convinced.

"I just think the way the team plays suits him, with his power and his speed, combined with the ability he has got".

Thierry Henry has criticised Liverpool new boy Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, saying he doesn't know what the midfielder is good at.

"It's very exciting but obviously a bit surreal at the same time". Do you really think that not one French player or Dutch player had phone calls in the afternoon about a move or not?

"That he can see that players love to play for him". He can play in numerous positions as well, similar to me.

"To be a part of that now, it's a massive honour".

Oxlade-Chamberlain moved to the Merseyside club recently for a fee of £40 million.

He feels that Juergen Klopp's men have the edge, by virtue of having a more settled backline. He sees a lot of good things in me, but he also sees areas that he believes he can push me and develop.

"Their defence isn't 100 per cent, so they'll definitely concede, but I just reckon they have a little too much".

"Yes, he went to the national team and trained normally, but now we have to prepare for a normal season so we have seven games (before the next worldwide break)". You have to get in the first team to start with at Liverpool'.

"After the business they've done, I've probably changed my mind and they will be in the mix".

Liverpool had a day to forget at the Etihad today, as Manchester City galloped to a 5-0 victory and to the summit of the Premier League.

"I would be over the moon to be involved but I haven't even had a proper session yet so that's up to the manager", he said. Of course. But on the day of a game? For the defending that I had to do, I chose to be smart and a lot of the older boys' encouragement helped me to do that.

Klopp says that the Chester-born attacker is "not only a good football player" but also "a very good and smart person", adding: "What we have to give him is education, training and opportunity to play".
