Liverpool fans have gotten a major boost as it is reported by Sky Sports that England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could return to action for his Reds U23s game against Derby on Friday.

The England midfielder has been out of the manager Jurgen Klopp’s team since last season and has yet to see any game in the current campaign.

The former Arsenal player had sustained multiple ligament damages to his right knee during Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final first-leg tie with Roma last April.

It was earlier concluded that he will not see any game this season but he has recovered ahead of time and will begin his comeback with the youth team games.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was reported to be ready on Monday night’s U23s defeat against Everton but was not included in the matchday squad.

With a final decision already reached the 25-year-old will be available for the match at Derby’s training ground.

Reacting to his return manager Jurgen Klopp said it would be a “bonus” if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain featured during the 2018/19 campaign as he is not expected.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain immediately transformed into a better player at the Anfield after leaving the North London outfit as it is now obvious that his best was not seen at the Emirates Stadium.
