Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sums up Liverpool's night with one horribly wayward pass

Liverpool F.C.’s Alex Oxlade Chamberlain in action vs Burnley. Manager Jurgen Klopp has reassured the England international that Anfield is the place for him

With plenty of talk about Oxlade-Chamberlain's position in Klopp's side, bookmakers Paddy Power joked about him ending up at Sunderland or Stoke instead of in central midfield for the Reds.

Despite it being a debut to forget for the midfielder in a Liverpool shirt, former striker Heskey feels that Oxlade-Chamberlain will end up being a great signing for the Merseyside outfit.

Despite heaping praise on Oxlade-Chamberlain prior to Liverpool's Carabao Cup clash at Leicester City, Heskey said he was "disappointed" by his first full debut at the King Power Stadium.

And the 24-year-old is yet to experience a win for his new employers, despite appearing in all three of their fixtures following his move.

"Rio Ferdinand isn't the only person to so a sport he's not used to.", he wrote.

In response to a tweet by Arsenal fansite @DailyCannon which read "Not one of his finest" says Sky of an very bad Ox corner.

And asked where Liverpool fans can expect Oxlade-Chamberlain to play under Jurgen Klopp, Heskey told Sky Sports: 'I think in this Liverpool side they interchange a lot so it doesn't matter where he starts games really.

Whether or not Keane, who moved from Burnley to Everton this summer for slightly less than Oxlade-Chamberlain cost Liverpool, meant to respond in that manner remains to be seen.

The Reds have picked up eight points from their opening five Premier League games to leave them in eighth place in the table.

Will Oxlade-Chamberlain come good for Liverpool?
