Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s Liverpool comeback
Could Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain play for Liverpool this season?
Over the past few weeks Oxlade-Chamberlain has posted several updates on social media as he’s returned to training at Anfield.
The Ox has been watching from the sidelines as Liverpool try to win the league title for the first time in 29 years.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s campaign was ruined at the backend of last season.
The England star was stretchered off in the Champions League semi-final win against Roma with damaged knee ligaments.
Could Oxlade-Chamberlain make an early return?
The Liverpool Echo now believe that Oxlade-Chamberlain will play for Liverpool this season.
Readers are told that the Ox could be back by March:
Liverpool remain reluctant to put a timeframe on his return but the ECHO understands that he should be back in full training at Melwood by mid to late February.
The Reds won’t take any risks with Oxlade-Chamberlain but it’s realistic that he will be available for selection in March.
How many games could the Ox play this season?
If Oxlade-Chamberlain does indeed return to action in March, there is the potential that he’s involved in Liverpool’s last ten Premier League games of the season.
He’d also return for the Champions League second-leg against Bayern Munich. While the Ox would be available for England selection in the Nation League semi-final.
