Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said the club don’t longer talk about their Premier League triumph in the 2019-2020 season as they have started paying attention to the new season.
In the previous season, Liverpool finally grabbed the opportunity of winning their first Premier League title in 30 years. They didn’t only win the title, they won it in style by ensuring that the second-placed Manchester City finished 18 points behind them.
Though that was the only title the club was able to win unlike the 2018-2019 season where they won three titles – UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup, it was the title the fans of the club have been looking forward to the most.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain said “it was amazing, but it’s done now”, adding that the Premier League winning players of the club can only look back on the triumph later in the future.
“As a team, it doesn’t feel like we did it if you get me? We know we did it, we know we are in the history books and we have our medals to remind us, but being in and around the building, no-one is talking about it, no-one is giving off the impression that we are champions, and that’s how it should be”, Oxlade-Chamberlain told Goal.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was an important part of Liverpool’s Premier League winning team. He played 43 matches in all competitions for the club in which he scored 8 goals and provided 2 assists.
The 27-year-old England international is expected to play an important role in the club’s attempt to defend its title. The club has started the drive on September 12 when they played against newly-promoted Leeds United. The match ended 4-3 in favor of Liverpool.
Oxlade-Chamberlain who has three years left on his current contract with Liverpool is expected to feature in the club’s second match of the season against Chelsea on Sunday, September 20.
