That's the verdict of former Chelsea forward Tony Cascarino.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made his first start since April 2018 on Wednesday night as Liverpool faced Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was substituted at half-time with Chelsea 1-0 up and his replacement Roberto Firmino set up two Sadio Mane goals as the two Premier League clubs drew 2-2 after extra time with Liverpool winning 5-4 on penalties.

Cascarino thinks Jurgen Klopp should avoid looking to use the England international in wide positions again this year, arguing he should only be utilised in central midfield.

"Roberto Firmino was sorely missed in the first half. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a fine player and he will come good in his road back from injury, but he cannot play in a front three."

"Having Firmino in a central position - where he can win the ball back and play team-mates in - completes the whole team."

"It's a position he can play, he can play much better than he did tonight but that's how it is and after a long injury you have to find back your rhythm and in training it's already there."
