Wenger: Liverpool thrashing will hurt forever

Wenger: Liverpool thrashing will hurt forever

Arsene Wenger has suggested Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should have stayed at Arsenal to fight for his place rather than move to Liverpool.

The Juventus ace is a reported transfer target for Arsenal, but Liverpool should gatecrash the party.

Whether it's been the calamitous displays from Dejan Lovren, Albert Moreno's penchant for an error or the lack of pace Ragnar Klavan possesses, it seems their backline always lets them down.

"I have to analyse that well".

"What do you want to be, a big player and not have to fight?"

"They played a lot of long balls to Giroud, but he can not play and that will change a few things".

"It's hard to guess, but we have tried to see what I'll do but for me the most important thing is we turn up and it's a positive performance".

The England worldwide joined Liverpool for £35m in August after the 24-year-old rejected the offer of a new contract with the Gunners.

They also claim that Salah - whose goals helped Egypt qualify for their first World Cup since 1990 - was picked because of "what he represents for youth in Egypt and the world as an example for the realization of ambitions, dreams and a symbol of an aspiration to a stronger and better future".

In fact, Liverpool have scored at least three goals in their last four games against Arsenal, which bodes well for the clash at the Emirates.

'It would be not fair to put the defeat at Liverpool, where the whole team had a bad performance, on one player, ' he said.

"I just say we are a team who likes to go forward and create chances and we do create chances".

Oxlade-Chamberlain is unlikely to get a friendly reception on his return, but Wenger insisted he wants all former Arsenal players "to be respected" by the crowd.

Salah has been on fire in the last few months and finds himself sitting at the summit of the Premier League top scorers chart with an impressive 14, averaging one every 97 minutes, the best of anyone who has netted more than five times in the top flight.

"When you have such a long career as I have, you have some defeats unfortunately that hurt you for the rest of your life", he said.

"I believe what is interesting in football is you always have a time to make up for it".

That is a very fearless thing to say as it is clear that our strikers have lost their scoring boots at the moment, but I guess our luck in front of goal must change at some point. We have to be ready for a different challenge on Friday.
