Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp buoyed by Arsenal setback

"After that we looked at certain things to try and change them and then it's all about the togetherness in the squad".

But, after a slow start at Liverpool following his ($46 million) move, Oxlade- Chamberlain has started to hit his stride in recent weeks - just in time for his first return to Emirates on Friday.

Reds boss Jürgen Klopp will surely be looking to bolster his defensive ranks during the January transfer window, if he has genuine ambitions of his side challenging for major honours on all fronts this season.

"But it's in the past".

They suggest that Arsenal are lining up a €40 million (£35.4 million) for the Italian, one that could very well be accepted by the Old Lady.

"I think the biggest improvement, or the biggest potential he still has, is really being involved in goalscoring situations, because he has it in himself", Klopp said. "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".

Salah and Chamberlain were the biggest names signed by Liverpool last summer.

And he said: "Everything we are doing has influence on our plans".

And he could be set to play against his former side tomorrow (7.45pm) when Liverpool travel to the Emirates.

It's believed Liverpool would need some encouragement from the Saints if they were to revive their interest in the centre-back and because of that, according to The Independent, they have turned their attentions to Basel defender Manuel Akanji. Do we play in a four or a three or a five?

"So thank God, I, or we, here make the decisions and nobody else". "It is unbelievable, but he was not asked for this too much I think in the past".

"We are not relaxed, but we have a view on everything and it needs to fit together and everything needs to work out in the end, and you need to have solutions for different situations and systems and all that stuff". It could have been better, but it could have been much worse.
