Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the comeback trail as he returns to Liverpool’s Champions League squad

The midfielder has been out since April with a serious knee injury.

Premier League title hopefuls Liverpool suffered disappointment on the pitch on Monday night as they drew 1-1 with West Ham United.

The Reds threw away a lead to squander the chance to go five points clear at the summit.

They have, however, received some positive news on the fitness front.

According to the Evening Standard, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been added to Liverpool’s Champions League squad for the forthcoming games with Bayern Munich.

The 25-year-old suffered a knee injury during the first leg of last season’s Champions League semi-final win over Roma.

The ex-Arsenal man hasn’t played since but it would appear that a return isn’t too far away.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was starting to look like a top player prior to his injury and Liverpool fans had really warmed to him.

 

Before picking up the injury last season he had netted five goals and claimed eight assists for the Reds.

Klopp had been using Oxlade-Chamberlain as a driving force in midfield; a position which he was thriving in.

Liverpool have coped perfectly well without the England international this season; although having drawn the last two Premier League matches the squad could perhaps do with an injection of something.

Pace and the ability to run at defenders are what Oxlade-Chamberlain brings to the team and he could prove a vital addition to the squad as the business end of the season approaches.
