Liverpool: Grading the transfer window

Ox Benched – Liverpool's Strongest Possible 4-3-3 XI vs Man City

Philippe Coutinho has missed out on the matchday squad for Liverpool's trip to Manchester City, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is named among the substitutes following his deadline-day switch from Arsenal.

Speaking before the game on Sky Sports, Arsenal great Henry picked apart the England international's reasons for leaving Arsenal, and gave a withering overall assessment of Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's first Arsenal appearance came from the bench against Manchester United on August 28, 2011, as the Gunners fell to the Red Devils on a scoreline of 8-2.

"The team and the feel of the whole football club in general just sat right with me".

"I felt the main thing was taking myself out of my comfort zone".

"Sometimes it opens the door for some younger players, who get an opportunity they otherwise might not get".

Oxlade-Chamberlain got first hand of experience of the quality of the current Liverpool side as he was part of the sorry Arsenal team that lost 4-0 at Anfield before the worldwide break.

Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and skipper Jordan Henderson continue in the midfield as Oxlade-Chamberlain is made to wait for his Reds debut.

"It's very exciting but obviously a bit surreal at the same time".

"For me, if I was representing him, I would now be saying, 'Look, you have got your move, but the ball is in your court now".

"I've spoke about this for about six years - my whole career - where I'm going to be playing or where I'd like to play".

"The boss said to me [on tour] to just play with freedom [at wing-back], play as I would normally play, I went out with that in mind and I think I showed that as well".

"I can not come out with every single conversation I have with the players".

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

Coutinho hasn't played for Liverpool this season while being the subject of three huge offers from Barcelona, and even lodged a transfer request in early August in an attempt to force through a move to the Spanish side.
