Liverpool: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out for a number of months

Liverpool: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out for a number of months -Liverpool News

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out injured for a number of months with a hamstring problem, journalist James Pearce has confirmed before Saturday’s clash against Manchester City.

The Lowdown: Another injury blow for Ox

The Englishman has suffered an injury-plagued career, picking up a serious knee injury back in 2018 and struggling to shake off other issues ever since.

Unfortunately, Oxlade-Chamberlain limped out of a pre-season clash with Crystal Palace with a hamstring injury, with Jurgen Klopp somewhat aloof when asked about it after the match.

The severity of the issue has now been revealed, in what is an undeniable setback for both the player and Liverpool as a team.

The Latest: Pearce confirms severity

Writing on Twitter on Saturday, The Athletic‘s Pearce confirmed that Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out until the autumn:

“Devastating setback for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Sidelined for two to three months. Could be October before he’s back playing.”

The Verdict: Cruel setback for midfielder

Oxlade-Chamberlain is such a likeable, down-to-earth individual and this is a cruel blow for him just as a new season is about to get underway.

Granted, he wasn’t necessarily seen as a key starter moving forward but his eye for goal can be priceless off the substitutes’ bench, with 17 goals and 15 assists coming his way in a Liverpool shirt.

The more that Oxlade-Chamberlain’s injuries continue, however, the more it feels like a natural parting of ways will happen when his contract expires next summer.
