Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed the one moment when he realised Liverpool fans were 'special'.

The England midfielder, who completed the deadline day move from Arsenal back in 2017, has picked out one game when he realised what he described as "the beauty" of the Reds' supporters.

Oxlade-Chamberlain told The Mirror: "They travel everywhere to see us. They support us through thick and thin.

"I remember one game, Sevilla away, we’re 3-0 up in the Champions League, we throw it away and we end up drawing 3-3 and they’ve somehow got to get home, they’ve got to get a flight home and get into work the next day.

"I remember us going over, us clapping them and I couldn’t believe it. It was almost like we’d won the game and we hadn’t done anything wrong. That was probably one of the first moments I realised how special they are as a group of fans.

"They appreciated us, we blew it, we’re sorry about that but we really appreciate you coming and they give you that love back. I understood that and I understood what the club was about from early on.

"The beauty of these fans is that, as long as they can see you’re giving your absolute all, then they’re happy with that. Of course you’ve got to provide quality and do what you have to do, appreciate them like they appreciate you."

Oxlade-Chamberlain also revealed the reason he departed Arsenal in favour of a switch to Liverpool.

"It’s just a fantastic place to be and there’s a feeling that the fans give off which is unique and they are really, really special," he added.

"It’s not hard for us as players to appreciate what it means to play for this club and what it means for them.

"Even looking at Liverpool for years before I even got here, I understood the ethos and what the club was all about.

"I bought into that, I respect those values and it’s something I hold strongly for myself and that was another reason why I wanted to come and play for this brilliant football club."
