The £40million summer signing was still with the Gunners that day, and was one of many to be given a torrid time by Liverpool’s attackers as they strolled to a comfortable victory.
Still, Lallana claims he saw glimpses from Oxlade-Chamberlain that day that persuaded him he could suit the Reds’ style and offer something to their squad.
Discussing the 24-year-old’s move to Anfield, Lallana also expressed his belief that he can improve even further after making the move to Anfield.
‘He’s a great lad and I’m really looking forward to working with him,’ Lallana said.
‘Even watching him against us in the 4-0 win, part of me was thinking his attributes would be great in our team.
‘I think it’s a great signing. Just as much as it’s good for us, I think it will be good for him as well.
