Slowly but surely, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is showing he has a big future at Liverpool.

He produced another fine display during the 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, assisting Mohamed Salah's goal and receiving the Man of the Match award.

And according to club legend Jamie Redknapp, the 24-year-old is already better at Liverpool than he ever was at Arsenal, who he joined from in the summer.

"There's vast improvements in his game," said Redknapp of the Ox. "I felt when he went to Arsenal for years he stood still. He never really looked like he was improving.

"At times he picked up a lot of injuries. I know what that's like, it's demoralising. But even when he got himself fit he just didn't look like he had that sharpness.

"I'm seeing here a real player under Jurgen Klopp. It looks like the fitness is there, I think that he's learning in the position that he's playing."

Away from the football pitch Oxlade-Chamberlain is also impressing. He gave a post-match interview alongside Philippe Coutinho after the Bournemouth game and asserted himself very well.

The best part of Oxlade-Chamberlain's interview came when the Sky Sports reporter turned to Coutinho and asked: "How desperate are you to stay apart of this Liverpool team?"

It was an awkward question that Coutinho was clearly struggling to answer, so his teammate stepped in and gave an immense response. Check it out below.

THE OX TAKES CONTROL

Oxlade-Chamberlain put his arm round Coutinho and said: "He's a Liverpool player right now and he's doing really well for us.

"He's been the most professional person I've seen all season. He's been top quality from the start and every time he gets on the pitch he does his all for the club.

"That's the most important thing right now. It's not fair to ask those kinds of questions I don't think. He gives us his all every game and that's all we can ask for."

Take a bow. Even the reporter was taken aback by Oxlade-Chamberlain's response, simply saying: "Well said."

It's another sign that the Englishman is maturing as a professional footballer and has leadership qualities that will see him become an important player for Liverpool.
