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

Arsenal fans appear to have particularly enjoyed this...

Spare a thought for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Not even a month ago, his final appearance in an Arsenal shirt saw him on the wrong end of a 4-0 mauling at Anfield.

Since then, he’s completed a move to Liverpool and, despite making four appearances for his new club, is yet to be on the winning side. His latest appearance – his first start – came in the Carabao Cup at Leicester on Tuesday night. Despite first half dominance from Jurgen Klopp’s side at the King Power, they failed to make a breakthrough. After the interval, goals from Shinji Okazaki and Israel Slimani were enough to dump the visitors out of the competition.

Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t have the best of nights, perhaps summed up by a late wayward pass as Liverpool went in search of a goal that would reduce the two goal deficit…

Receiving the ball in space on the edge of the final third, he turned before attempting to spray a pass in the direction of  one of his teammates (we’re not sure which one). As the video below shows, the pass is horribly miscued.
