Liverpool have now gone three games without a win

Shinji Okazaki inspired Leicester's second-half turnaround in a 2-0 win over Liverpool in the English League Cup on Tuesday, the latest disappointing result in a tough month for Juergen Klopp's team.

Liverpool are trophy-less since 2012, when they won this competition, and getting their hands on some silverware again would not only appease the fans, but reduce pressure on Klopp and give his players experience of winning something.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made the somewhat surprise move from the Emirates Stadium to Anfield on deadline day this summer, having rejected a new contract with the Gunners.

"We have to see how I make the squad but of course it would make sense that Flanno is at least in the squad for tomorrow", he said before adding, "Playing from the beginning?" We have a few little things. Or say, "If you want to go to the semi-finals in January, then do it because we don't want to be part of it"? "It is all good from this side at the moment".

Despite the mixed feelings many on Merseyside have had towards the polarizing youngster, Liverpool fans will still be hoping that their Klopp's famed man management skills and teaching ability on the training pitch will finally be able to bring the full potential the English worldwide has only shown in flashing since bursting into the top flight as a teenager.

The 25-year-old was one of Liverpool's best players in the first-half, posing a constant threat in behind the midfield but keeping himself too far out of reach for their defenders to come and close him down.

Klopp's success over seven years at Borussia Dortmund made him one of Europe's most sought after managers, but with Liverpool struggling defensively, former Newcastle United captain Shearer said he was no better than his predecessor. "Dejan has a back problem so we have to see who lines up in the centre-back area".

'It's the highest quality if you can play in different positions in the Premier League.

"But he's now in the ideal age and is still able to make big steps".

"I'm sick of goals like this to be honest, you can not play football and do that".

"I'm really happy to have him here".
