Oxlade-Chamberlain doubled their advantage nine minutes later with a powerful drive from 25 yards which left Ederson no chance before Sadio Mane headed in a third just after the half-hour mark.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to play a key part in the coming week for the Reds, alongside Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner, who will be Liverpool's only senior midfielders for next week's clash with Manchester City in the second leg.

"We're going to have to defend really well and we're going to have to go out there with confidence and attack as well". It gives you an opportunity to do things in a new way and that has helped him.
"It definitely shows why I wanted to come here and I want to keep improving". "I've been working on that, on trying to do it more often". He also claimed Jürgen Klopp's team were ideally suited to the Champions League and the latter stages in particular.
