Chamberlain’s early return could ease concerns over goals from Liverpool midfield

Graeme Souness criticised Liverpool’s midfielders for their goal return this season but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s return could help out in that regard.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains on course for an early return from injury as he prepares to feature in an under-23 fixture this week, according to the Guardian.

They report that the England international is in line to face Derby on Friday night and is eyeing a return before the end of the current season.

He was reportedly initially meant to miss the entire campaign but is back in training and a return to match action is the next step along that recovery process.

And Oxlade-Chamberlain would return to a Liverpool midfield which was blasted by Reds legend Graeme Souness over the weekend (The Sunday Times) over its poor goal return.

Chamberlain chipped in with some important goals last season – most notably, in the 3-0 thumping of Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

 

And if he can come back before the end of the season and get one or two goals that just tip the balance in the title race for a team that is looking a little short on ideas and energy at present then that would be an invaluable contribution to Jurgen Klopp’s side.

It’s important not to rush him back and risk further injury – although he may have his sights on England’s Nations League semi-final in June personally – but Chamberlain is more than capable of easing Liverpool’s midfield goalscoring woes.
