Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have got himself on the scoresheet during Liverpool‘s 5-0 win over Swansea but he was still ‘disappointed’ with his contribution to the clash.

The former Arsenal ace took advantage of some woeful defending to slam a fierce strike into the corner and join Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold in grabbing a goal.

Four of those strikes came in the second half as Liverpool put Swansea to the sword as Jurgen Klopp’s side wasted a series of opportunities in the opening period.

But despite getting a goal and all three points, Oxlade-Chamberlain could not hide his annoyance with his involvement.

‘I was a bit disappointed with myself today, although I’m happy to score,’ he said after the match. ‘When the chance came at the end I was happy to put it away.

‘In the first half we did OK and we stepped it up in the second half.

‘I just want more out of myself. I could have done better with my end product a few times. Overall it could have been better.

‘I just want to keep pushing myself on to do better. It’s important for me [to score]. Today it [the goal] wasn’t so crucial as we were leading by a few but I need to keep doing that. There were some great goals today. We defended well overall.’

Despite Oxlade-Chamberlain being unhappy with his display, Klopp could not hide his delight at the team’s performance.

‘After 55 minutes it was brilliant, before that it was work. It was not easy,’ he said.

‘The last half an hour was fantastic, a joy to watch, a very deserved win.

‘I know that people are often not patient enough as it’s all about results. It’s possible from outside to think it’s not quick enough, we feel really good in this moment.

‘Five minutes in the Arsenal game was not good but the performance was good. We drew. For tonight, we feel really good.’
