Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has suggested that Jurgen Klopp is a more demanding manager than Arsene Wenger following his move to Liverpool FC from Arsenal.

The midfielder opted to leave The Emirates and sign for the Reds back on transfer deadline day in August and he has been getting used to life under Klopp on Merseyside.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to break into the first team at Liverpool FC following his move, with the England international having only started one Premier League game for the Reds so far this season.

The 24-year-old has been getting used to life under a new manager after having worked closely with Wenger during his time at Arsenal.

And the England midfielder has lifted the lid on the differences between the two managers that he has noticed.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “I learned a big change in the style of play under a new manager.

“Arsene [Wenger] is a great manager and he’s proved that for many years. His philosophy and style of play is based on the ‘Arsenal way’ of playing, with his passing game, which is brilliant and works very well for him.

“Jurgen is very demanding and he makes clear to us our roles and responsibilities, and the intensity that he wants out of us.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team for Liverpool FC in the coming weeks and months as the Reds try and use the hectic festive period as a chance to climb the Premier League table.

Klopp is aiming to steer Liverpool FC to a higher finish in the Premier League this term after they finished fourth last season.
