Oxlade-Chamberlain spent six years with Arsenal, where he was never a guaranteed starter and the first few months of the England international's time at Anfield proved a struggle, as well.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has thanked Liverpool fans for generating a "horrible" atmosphere for Manchester City on Wednesday and believes it disturbed Pep Guardiola's players during the Champions League quarter-final.

"It's an wonderful place to play, it was stable, you build relationships, but I felt I had to do it for football reasons to try and better myself".

Liverpool will head to the Etihad stadium on 10th April for the return fixture knowing that if they bag a vital away goal then the tie will all but over, and a place in the semi finals will beckon.

"You don't need reminding how big a game that is going to be, especially at Goodison", Oxlade-Chamberlain added. If you are the away team and the crowd gets going like that it is terrible.

To achieve the latter, Oxlade-Chamberlain needs to show that his screamer against City was more than just momentary brilliance. "It got us going and it would probably shake anyone up so you have to give fans credit for that". But I wasn't too happy [with my performance]. 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.

The 24-year-old said: "The manager has been pushing me all season and shouting at me for not taking the game by the scruff of the neck and providing those kinds of moments, being the one shooting and making the difference". "I've been working on that, on trying to do it more often".

The Justice Department has said it will provide more information on the action at 6PM EST on Friday. The company shuttered its adult section past year in response to government pressure.

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has hit out at the Gunners' coaching, pointing to the progress Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made since joining Liverpool.

"We definitely have qualities that are suited to this competition", he said.

"That's all good [but] all players can improve and that's where he can improve of course as well".

"You don't get many opportunities so you have to be clinical and the three boys up front this season have managed to stand out in how clinical they have been".

"The loyalty I had for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger meant I could do it the right way".

"Now, he's flying, you can see the training at Liverpool that they must do".
