Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he's "happy" with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain despite not starting him against former club Arsenal for this week's Carabao Cup semifinal first-leg.

The match ended 0-0 at Anfield on the night.

Klopp said, "I'm very happy with Ox, but I know he was disappointed last night. I get that, 100 per cent – I would have been. The thing is, with the situation we are in we had to think how we start and how can we change?

"And obviously the game then developed slightly differently than we expected. Ox could have started, he's in a good shape and he's in a really good moment. For me, it was about starting how we started and we had with Curtis [Jones] and Oxlade two offensive options wherever we use them. That's it.

"But I'm absolutely happy with Ox, to be honest, he's in a really good moment and we will see that in the next few weeks."
