Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of Liverpool’s match with Southampton.

The Reds face the Saints following victories in all five of their Premier League fixtures so far this season, plus a win against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Milner has been instrumental in helping maintain the Reds’ perfect record so far this season and Klopp has picked him out as “the best example” for the rest of the squad.

“It’s not just this season, last year he had most assists in Champions League,” Klopp told reporters.

“Only in football it sounds like 32 was a massive age.

“In all other parts of life you are still young, and he is still young.

“He is a top professional and his body gives him a chance to do so.

“James is the best example for them (the squad). He is a very energetic boy and likes to cover big distances. He can play football, and that makes him a pretty valuable player.”

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – who is expected to miss the vast majority of the 2018-19 season – has been praised by Klopp as he continues his rehabilitation from multiple knee ligament damage.

“He will always be a very important part of the squad because of the guy he is,” Klopp added.

“We knew he was a good footballer, but could never have imagined what an outstanding person he is.”
