Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sat down for an exclusive interview with the club's official website, and opened up on his first few months with the Reds, hinting that it has been hard work becoming accustomed to Jürgen Klopp's intense training sessions.

The 23-year-old joined Liverpool from Arsenal in the summer, for a fee that could rise to £40 million, scoring two goals and chipping in with one assist in 16 appearances for the Merseysiders so far this season.

And the England international told LiverpoolFC.com how it has taken him some time to meet the physical demands laid on by his manager during training sessions, hinting that Arsene Wenger was not quite as intense:

"I’ve definitely got the idea and I know in my head what he demands. You say ‘fully up to speed’ – it’s maybe one of those things that can take longer than that,’ he told Liverpool.com. ‘I think the more I play and the more consistently I play I’ll be physically fully up to speed with the demands, but I definitely feel that I’m in a really good place physically and I think I’ve made strides in that respect, with how intense the training is here and how demanding this manager is."

The Reds currently sit in fifth position in the Premier League table, two points and one place behind the Gunners, and Chamberlain will be desperate for his side to finish above his former team.

Next up for Liverpool is a trip to Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow, and a win will be of absolute paramount importance to their hopes of finishing inside the top four.

And with Arsenal facing off with Manchester United, Klopp's men are presented with a fantastic opportunity to close the gap on those above them in the table.
