Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might get his first champions league start for Liverpool against Maribor

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might make his first Champions League start for Liverpool, against Maribor on Tuesday. Klopp was impressed with the midfielder's performance after he came on as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Saturday, and it may have been enough to earn him a start in Slovenia.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has got off to a stuttering start at Anfield after his £35m Deadline Day move from Arsenal, starting just once, in a defeat at Leicester in the Carabao Cup.
Klopp said at his press conference on Monday “I really loved the performance when he came on. He needed a little bit of time and my most positive thing was that finally he has arrived. He is a big signing for us, obviously, but a fast player like him needs the circumstances to perform so he needed time. But then Saturday - 'bang!'. Comes on, uses his speed, really spot on, it was a very nice sign. I loved to see it. I was not only happy about his offensive situation. I also liked the way he reacted after we lost the ball, little things. I cannot say how happy I was to see Chambo playing like this. I don't know about the line-up today. He is in my mind - if it is about a start, you will see Tuesday.”
