Chamberlain's brilliant low drive from the edge of the box was a fantastic prelude to what was to come for the rest of the game.
"It is a shame because I don't think we played badly".
"Alexis would have played", said Wenger, after Arsenal leaked two goals in four second-half minutes to slip to a damaging defeat that leaves them eight points off the top four and staring at a second consecutive season without Champions League football. During the post-match interview following Liverpool's exciting, and yet nervous, 4-3 win over Manchester City at Anfield, the German couldn't contain the drama and said in relation to the contest, "What the F*** was that!".
"The manager has been really encouraging and telling me to get push forward and get more goals". There is a quite comfortable gap still but, of course, there are still a lot of games to play.
"Every Liverpool player was outstanding", he said on LFC TV.
The England global has two assists and one goal in his last three games in all competitions for the Reds, and has taken his chance to fill in for the departed Philippe Coutinho as an attacking midfielder well.
John Stones was out-muscled by Firmino for Oxlade-Chamberlain's through-ball and the Brazilian dinked an effort in off the far post before Mane hit the outside of the same upright with a curling right-footer.
The win for Liverpool comes just days after the Reds lost their star in the form of Philippe Coutinho with a whopping £142 million sale to Barcelona.
He added: "It's a nice statement to make".
"We managed to catch Chelsea and that's what we wanted to do at the start of the day". "There were some hard games for them but they still scored and killed the game".
With Palace coming the closest to ending City's unbeaten run.
"We need to accept it even though it is not easy". The game was in our hands at that point for the first 15 to 20 minutes after the break, but after we conceded the second we needed to be stable and in that moment, we weren't solid enough.
