Gary Neville has warned Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain that he has plenty of work to do if he is to break into the first team at Liverpool.
The 24-year-old completed a transfer to Anfield from Arsenal on deadline day as the Gunners agreed to sell the midfielder to their Premier League rivals in a deal believed to be worth around £35m.
Oxlade-Chamberlain will now try to force his way into the first team at Anfield as he bids to help Liverpool try to challenge for the Premier League title under Jurgen Klopp.
The midfielder joins Liverpool after having spent six years at Arsenal and helping them win three FA Cup titles during that time.
However, former Manchester United defender Neville feels that the England international has a lot of things he needs to improve if he wants to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Anfield.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Neville said: “He’s got a huge amount of talent and is a decent lad but he has three or four areas of his game which he has to significantly improve.
“The biggest being his focus and concentration and being a really top professional.
“I think his injury record is poor, too, he’ll need to work hard to stay fit.
“Also, his impact in terms of his assists and goals. With the Champions League and Premier League, he’ll be an asset for the squad.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping to make his first appearance for Liverpool after the international break when the Reds return to Premier League action with a crunch clash against Manchester City at The Etihad on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds are currently second in the Premier League as they look to challenge for the title this season.
