Watch: Oxlade-Chamberlain Draws First Blood Against Man City

OX OX OX OX OX OX OX OX OX

I won’t lie to you. After seeing the teamsheet this morning, I expected this game to be a disaster from the outset.

And while there’s still plenty of time for things to go wrong, Liverpool are off to a flying start against Manchester City. (Rather unexpectedly!) And it’s all thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The former Arsenal man and confirmed Squishy took the ball in midfield and made a charging run toward the box. But while still a few yards outside the 18, and while at a difficult angle, AOC tried his luck. The low shot managed to catch Ederson flat-footed, evading his grasp and rolling toward the inside of the far post.

That is 1-0 to Liverpool and the game’s just getting started!
