Liverpool fans were delighted to see Oxlade-Chamberlain's cameo display
Liverpool fans were delighted to see Oxlade-Chamberlain play.
The 28-year-old midfielder has had some rotten injury luck during the last couple of seasons but he got some minutes yesterday.
When Chamberlain was introduced at Viacarge Road the game was over.
Liverpool had a 4-0 lead and would go on to add one more.
However, it was still a fantastic opportunity for Chamberlain to stretch his legs.
This was just his third appearance of the season in the Premier League so far (Transfermarkt).
His 26 minutes serve as a great start to getting him ready for a full 90.
The issues that Jurgen Klopp has in midfield are obvious as Harvey Elliott’s injury has left them short.
It seems that a lot of the fans are desperate to see Chamberlain back and playing too.

Many of them took to Twitter to express their delight as Jurgen Klopp introduced Chamberlain for Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Rotation will be key as the Reds battle in four competitions this season.
That will mean that the midfielder will be called upon to start at some point this season.
A knee injury and then the ensuing recovery process limited Chamberlain to just 17 games in all competitions last season (Transfermarkt).
This season is his chance to get back into the swing of things, though.
Klopp knows full well what a fit and firing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can do and he’ll be keen to get him to a place where he can thrive.
However, it will take more cameo appearances like this to fully get the English midfielder up to speed.
