The 24-year-old completed a deadline day move to the Merseyside club from Premier League rivals Arsenal in a deal worth £35million. One of Wales' stars in its run to the European Championship semifinals in 2016, the goal-scoring midfielder headed the winner in the FA Cup final in May and is still counted on by Wenger when fit. "You start putting things on your plate you don't even like eating just to make time to look around to assess the table plan, see where everybody is sitting and work out where is the best place to sit". Of the quintet, Wilshere appeared to be the biggest star in the making when he made a stunning breakthrough in the 2010-11 season, including that eye-catching display against Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta in a Champions League last-16 match against Barcelona.

And while you couldn't quite say all eyes were on him after becoming the only member of the England starting XI to move this week following his transfer to Liverpool, that's probably just as well, because this 4-0 win over Malta wasn't really a display to impress.

Liverpool have also signed AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah, Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke and Hull City defender Andy Robertson.

Molby wrote for the Liverpool Echo: "I find it strange that Liverpool didn't sign a centre-back this summer".

Aaron Ramsey almost caused controversy when he used #shaambles on social media in response to Arsenal selling Alex Oxlade Chamberlain. He doesn't get in their best XI, he doesn't strengthen their team. He doesn't strengthen the team, but what he does do is strengthen the squad. Oxlade-chamberlain admitted that when he first turned up for England duty his heart was in his mouth.

As England toiled, it was difficult not to divine some symbolism in some of Oxlade-Chamberlain's other decisions, especially given his previous praise for Steven Gerrard. The Costa Rican played for Betis back in 2012/13 season on loan and has expressed his delight and being back at the club.
