Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have missed the majority of last-season during Liverpool’s memorable road to winning the Champions League, but the midfielder is back and raring to go for the 2019/20 campaign.

Alex’s road to recovery provides a much-needed boost for his club manager, Jurgen Klopp, as Liverpool’s quest to win their first English top-flight title in 30 years continues.

Prior to his injury, Alex had been at the top of his game, scoring goals from midfield and influencing games.

His first season at Anfield following his move from Arsenal saw him score five goals, including an unforgettable strike at the Kop End against Manchester City in the Champions league.

Combining the pace of a winger with dribbling qualities and dynamic passing in the final third, Oxlade-Chamberlain is a huge threat from midfield.
