Video: Oxlade-Chamberlain Steps in to Defend Coutinho Over Barcelona Questions

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put in an excellent performance for Liverpool this afternoon against Bournemouth – and then proceeded to follow it up with a similar display in his post-match interview.

The midfielder has struggled to nail down a regular starting berth in the Reds’ XI since moving from Arsenal last summer, but it appears he’s won over Jurgen Klopp’s trust and looked at his bustling best at the Vitality Stadium.

In fairness, whilst we’d have loved to hear Coutinho’s answer, fair play to Chamberlain for sticking up for his mate, eh?

What did you think of the pairs’ performances?
