England worldwide Oxlade-Chamberlain s victor comes after his brace at Genk and an impressive performance on Tuesday as Klopp started with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane on the bench ahead of the weekend s huge clash with Premier League title rivals Manchester City.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was seen having a chat with Sander Berge after the Reds had beaten Genk 2-1 at Anfield in the Champions League.

Prior to the game, Liverpool had a close encounter against Aston Villa in the Premier League, where Sadio Mane's goal in the extra-time handed Liverpool a crucial win.

With that huge clash in mind, Klopp made a decision to rest some first-team regulars, including captain Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Andy Robertson.

The first goal didn't take long to show up and Gini Wijnaldum put Liverpool ahead after 13 minutes following some nice build-up play.

"In each of them we can decide it with a win, but that sounds easier than it is because both of them will be really tricky".

Their aggressive pursuit of making this game more than an afterthought was refreshing, for a moment at least, and their efforts were rewarded.

Had nothing to do in the first half but let a goal in anyway.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, playing in a less familiar advanced role, restored the hosts' advantage in the 53rd, collecting a neat pass from Salah on the edge of the box and beating Genk keeper Gaetan Coucke with a low drive on the turn.

Berge's contract expires in 2021, so this may be Genk's chance to earn good money for one of their most prized assets.

With Napoli drawing 1-1 at home to RB Salzburg in the other Group E fixture of the night, the Reds now lead the group with nine points.
