Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insists there is still a lot more to come from him at Liverpool despite him having his best goalscoring season.
The Reds are on course to claim a first league title in 30 years after storming the Premier League this season, dropping only two points so far.
And ‘the Ox’ has been there every step of the way even if he has not been a starter under Jurgen Klopp all of the time.
He has still made 18 Premier League appearances, scoring three goals, and has the same number of strikes in four Champions League outings.

But the former Arsenal man is not satisfied and says this mentality all stems from the environment of being around the Anfield club.
Klopp is never happy to rest on his laurels and he has instilled this feeling into his Reds squad.
And Oxlade-Chamberlain insists there is much more still to come from himself and from the squad as a whole, despite their brilliant form in recent times.
“I feel like I need to do a lot more if I’m being really honest. It’s my best my goalscoring season,” he told The Mirror.
“But, for me, I haven’t scored enough, I need to get more numbers and I’ve got the perfect base and the perfect team to do more.

“It’s a strange one. I think there’s certain things that have definitely suggested I’ve improved. I could see it in my first season here just before I got injured that things were going in the right way and it felt like I was a big part of a team going in the right direction collectively.
“That’s the environment we are in and I don’t know if that’s what we’ve built as a team or that’s the way I feel about myself, but I wouldn’t look at this season and clearly say I’ve taken a big step forward because in my eyes I need to do a lot more.
“I feel I need to do keep pushing to keep up with the rest of this team and everyone around to be a part of this. The only thing I can say is that I feel I have taken a step forward from two or three years ago because I’m now getting more minutes consistently.

“I think I’ve started six Premier League games in a row and it sounds funny but I can’t really remember me doing that before. I don’t think I ever did that at Arsenal.
“Look back and check but I don’t think I did. But I genuinely can’t remember playing that regularly.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to be utilised more regularly in the coming weeks after the news that club captain Jordan Henderson could be out for up to a month with a hamstring injury.
And with important games against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and Chelsea in the FA Cup to come, now would be the ideal time for the midfielder to step up his game to another level.
