Arsenal legend Ian Wright has stated that he will always love Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, following his move to Liverpool.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has come under fierce criticism from Arsenal fans, since his switch to Anfield went through.

But Wright has moved to defend the England international midfielder on social media website Twitter today.

Arsenal fans did not seem to agree with Wright's sentiment though, with most responding angrily to the message. 

Oxlade-Chamberlain has not made the most auspicious of starts at Liverpool, with his performance against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup coming in for particular ridicule.

The 24-year-old was guilty of giving possession away continuously, as Liverpool crashed out of the cup at the King Power Stadium.

Liverpool lost 2-0 against Leicester, which has put them under further pressure to pick up a run of wins.

Liverpool have their chance to get revenge of the Foxes tomorrow, when they take on Craig Shakespeare’s side in Premier League action.

The Reds go into the contest out of sorts, having failed to win any of their last four contests across all competitions.
