Why Liverpool must move on from Oxlade Chamberlain

Timothy Aiyeku




There was a light mood in the Liverpool camp following the report of the return of England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from an injury that has kept him away for 11 months.

The former Arsenal star was suffered a knee ligament injury last season when his team played against AS Roma in the first leg of the Champions League. The Reds played in the finals but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was absent.

It was expected that his return to action will bring home and a major boost to the Merseyside outfit owing to his form before he was left out.

With his return, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was meant to play with the youth team against Derby but it did not go as planned as he was again taken out of the pitch with a suspected hamstring injury.

This, therefore, means that the chances of him returning to the first team for full action are slim as the season is only left with 9 games which need fully fit players because of their importance to Liverpool’s bid to win the Premier League.

However, the efforts of the Reds team are to end the 29-year wait for A Premier League title as they are currently second in the table.
