Jurgen Klopp believes Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain is one of three players who could replace the suspended Sadio Mane against Burnley on Saturday.
Liverpool’s deadline day signing is yet to make his full debut for his new club, having been used as substitute during the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City last weekend and in the 2-2 Champions League draw against Sevilla in midweek.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was used as a right-winger and wing-back, both left and right, during the latter period of his Arsenal career has spoken of his desire to carve out a career as an attacking midfielder under Klopp.
Competition for places in Liverpool’s engine room is intense, however, and is only likely to increase as a result of Philippe Coutinho’s return, while Adam Lallana could also be back at the start of October.
And with Mane out of action following his red card against City, Oxlade-Chamberlain could be asked to play in an unfamiliar left-wing role against Sean Dyche’s in-form Burnley side.
