Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says there is more to come from him

Liverpool Man City Oxlade-Chamberlain

The truth is that, as with so much else at Arsenal, Oxlade-Chamberlain's failure to reach his potential is a source of much confusion and wistfulness.

Over the course of seven seasons with Arsenal, Oxlade-Chamberlain's career trajectory was both counter-intuitive and indicative of much of what is now wrong with the club. Slowly it is starting to pay off and it helps me to create moments like that. "I showed myself that if it's on more often I can keep doing it".

Liverpool are the Champions League's top scorers with 31, six more than any of their quarter-final rivals, and have conceded just six goals with only Barcelona (three) having a better record among the remaining teams. I could have been better on the ball so I was a bit disappointed with that.

"We knew we had to start fast, but I don't think that was hard today with the atmosphere". His first season at Liverpool has been far from ideal - lowlights include a 5-0 defeat to City on his debut and dismal showings against Leicester in the League Cup and more recently Manchester United - but he could still feasibly end the season with European silverware and his career revitalised under Jurgen Klopp. In the second half they obviously came at us a bit more and we dropped deep at times, which we didn't really want to do, but we defended brilliantly. Coming into the stadium for a game which was not a final it nearly set it up to be like a final.

Police clear the crowd as Salman Khan returns home
Khan has almost $90 million riding on his projects in coming months with at least three films in the pipeline, analysts say. The other four accused - actors Saif Ali Khan , Tabu, Neelam, and Sonali Bendre - were acquitted in the case.

"If you are the away team and the crowd gets going like that [inside Anfield], it is terrible", Oxlade-Chamberlain insisted.

Before the return leg at the Etihad there is the small matter of a Merseyside derby at Everton. It was felt like two legs in one game - establishing a lead safe enough to invite pressure, knowing risks mean opportunities for counter attacks.

"Then we have a job to do next week again". It is the one of, if not the, biggest game of the season every time we play the derby.

"We cannot make him quicker, and we don't have to, we cannot really work on his technical ability because he is on the highest level already and is now using them in the right moment, the right spaces, in the right situations, making the best decisions you can make".
