The forgotten man of Anfield is on the way back.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hasn’t played for Liverpool since picking up a knee ligament injury in our Champions League semi-final, against Roma, back in April 2018.
It has been a long road to recovery for the 25-year-old midfielder who has had to watch from the sidelines this season as Liverpool mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.
However, according to the news site, the BBC, Oxlade-Chamberlain is now close to resuming full-training, however, it could still be a while until he can be considered for first-team selection.
But Liverpool’s faith in the player they signed from Arsenal has seen Oxlade-Chamberlain named in Liverpool’s squad for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
If Liverpool can get past the huge challenge presented by Bayern Munich, in the last sixteen, Oxlade-Chamberlain could be available for the quarter-final stages.
Fingers crossed that everything goes to plan for the player who could give us some fresh impetus as we head into the latter stages of the season.
