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 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.
