Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insisted the exit of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona should have no impact on his side.

Coutinho, 25, made a €160million move to Camp Nou earlier this month in a blow to Liverpool’s chances of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain believes there is enough depth in Jurgen Klopp’s squad to deal with the departure of the Brazilian.

“When Phil didn’t play in some games we still played great football and we still have amazing players who can score goals – the likes of Mo [Salah], Sadio [Mane], Roberto [Firmino] and everyone else,” he told UK newspapers.

“We have goals and creativity all over the team. Obviously Phil added to that, there is no doubt about that.

“The fact is he has gone now and we have to think about what we have got that is going to get the job done. I have every faith in the boys that we just move on now.
