Raheem Sterling Brilliantly Explains How Oxlade-Chamberlain's Goal Left Him 'Fuming'

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling have brilliantly recalled the Champions League quarter-final first-leg, with the Manchester City starlet revealing how his counterpart left him in furious.

The ex-Arsenal midfield is enjoying his football under Jurgen Klopp's regime, and he's played a starring role for his new side, including heroics in the Champions League.

Oxlade-Chamberlain netted a superb strike against City.

And the England international has explained how he had to let Sterling know he was in the game.

"On the way back? Course I did. Had to let him know I'd arrived. I was in the game, had to let him know I was in the game," Oxlade-Chamberlain said on Colossal TV.

'Ox' added: "It was a big goal and we wanted to go out there, them boys were flying, have a good result and beat them. That set us going.

"I can't really remember what I was thinking. I was just buzzing."

Looking for 'Raz' as he returned to his half.

"But on the way back I was definitely thinking, 'Where's Raz?' I clocked eyes and there wasn't really much love coming back.

"Little grin maybe. He was fuming, it is what it is. Win some, you lose some."

Sterling admits he went to bed fuming after catching 'Ox's' grin.

"I went to bed fuming, because I could see his little face grinning when he came back. He's my boy and everything, but I was raging.

"To my team-mates I was like 'anybody else', on the day I'd want anyone else to score."

Of course, Liverpool eventually secured passage to the Champions League semi-final, and will face AS Roma for a spot in the final.
