Paul Merson has reacted to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s display against Aston Villa, claiming the Liverpool man was struggling against the Premier League rivals.

Pundit was not impressed as Oxlade-Chamberlain found it hard to play in the false 9 role for the Reds during the 1  – 0 win over Steven Gerrard’s side.

“It has never been a position” Merson said.

“So you are asking someone to play in a position that isn’t a position. So it was hard, it was hard for him. Villa sat very deep, they pinged them back. For me, I thought he found it a little bit difficult today.”
